A MAN was arrested in Forrestdale after police allegedly found him in possession of goods stolen from nearby building sites.
Building crime organisation PACT Site Security contacted Canning Vale police after lights and CCTV cameras were stolen from three BDC display homes in Piara Waters’ Madox Estate.
Police investigations led them to execute a search warrant in Forrestdale where they allegedly found the stolen goods, as well as a large amount of copper cable and a pulley system in the offender’s vehicle.
The pulley is believed to have been used to remove the copper cable from the ground.
A PACT Site Security spokesperson said there had been 32 reports of burglary, stealing and damage at building sites across Perth during March.
Piara Waters recorded the most offences with six.
Investigations into where the copper cable came from are continuing.
