Perth: superglue thwarts Salvos donation tin thief

SUPERGLUE stopped a thief attempting to rob the Salvation Army’s church headquarters on William Street, Perth about 12.50pm last Sunday.

Senior Sergeant Craig Davis said the thief forced open the front door to the church’s coffee shop, went inside and checked the till.

The man police would like to speak to in relation to an attempted theft.

“He attempted to remove the charity tin which was super-glued down, and left the premises without stealing anything, but the alarm was audibly activated,” Sgt Davis said.

The thief was described as male, dark skinned, in his 40s with a greying beard, grey collar-length hair and wore a cap and a grey zip-front jacket.
