MANDURAH detectives uncovered a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of stolen property on Thursday.
A search warrant executed at Sanctuary Circuit, Dawesville allegedly uncovered a variety of antiques, jewellery, electrical goods and household items.
Detectives described the man, who allegedly stole everything but the kitchen sink, as a hoarder.
The more unusual pieces recovered included a bugle stamped 1947 England, a motorised esky, cameras, steamer trunks, antique irons, patio heaters and a pink flamingo.
Other items included scuba gear, a spear gun, wakeboards, surfboards, an outboard motor and an antique sextant used for ocean navigation.
Detective Sergeant Chris De Bruin estimated the property’s worth at $50,000.
He believes many of the offences were committed in July from a variety of addresses.
Det Sgt De Bruin is encouraging people to report everything when their homes are burgled.
“People tend to call and only report a few items,” he said.
“They need to report all items.”
A 37-year-old man has been charged with burglary and will appear in Mandurah Magistrates Court today.
