A HUNTINGDALE man has been arrested following an alleged crime spree in Perth’s south-eastern suburbs overnight involving a firearm and a road rage incident.
The 45 year-old man was arrested following a string of crimes, after which police located a sawn-12 gauge shotgun and roughly 35 shotgun shells.
Police alleged the man caused damage at a house on Jubilee Street in Beckenham, before he went to a property on Barkley Loop in Canning Vale two hours later armed with a firearm.
Shortly afterwards, it was alleged the man repeatedly rammed a car which had stopped at a roundabout.
About 7pm, what was believed to be a gunshot was heard near Moss Street in Huntingdale.
Responding police nearby allegedly heard the man’s raised voice and deployed a police dog.
After a short confrontation, the man was tasered and arrested.
The man was charged with possessing a firearm with circumstances of aggravation (altered) and endangerment of life, health or safety of a person.
He has been refused bail and is due to appear in court this morning.
