Man found acting suspiciously at Amaroo Village arrested

GOSNELLS police have charged a man after he was found allegedly acting suspiciously around Amaroo Village in Gosnells.

Last month, Gosnells Police began targeting thieves who were stealing from seniors at the Amaroo Village after multiple burglaries were recorded.

Acting senior sergeant Rob Coales said at 10.50pm on Wednesday, May 18, security at Amaroo Village contacted Gosnells Police who then arrested a man matching their description at 11.15pm.

He said police searched the man and found a torch as well as a flat head screwdriver.

As a result, Snr Sgt Coales said a 34-year-old man from the Wheatbelt was charged with possession of house breaking implements to commit an offence at night.

He will appear before the courts later this month.

Snr Sgt Coales said the police operation would continue.
