CLARKSON police officers discovered power tools, landscaping materials, car parts, a barbecue and a boat during a recent search.

Sergeant Darren Lumb said officers found the haul of allegedly stolen property while executing a search warrant at a Clarkson property on February 9.

Sgt Lumb said they were still investigating where much of the property originally came from, but had charged a Clarkson man (31) in relation to an Iluka burglary and receiving stolen property.

The latter charge related to the alleged theft of a beach buggy from Alkimos Surf Life Saving Club which police spotted at the Clarkson property following a tip off.

Sgt Lumb said when police recovered the surf club vehicle, they also retrieved brake parts for a car that had been reported stolen, prompting them to get a search warrant.

“We have ended up with heaps and heaps of stolen property,” he alleged.

The sergeant said that included about $12,000 worth of household items and tools taken from an Iluka home in December.

There was also a boat reported stolen in Mindarie last August and car parts traced back to various car yards across the northern suburbs.

The man is due to appear in Joondalup Magistrates Court on March 7 and other charges include stealing.

Anyone with information can call 9407 1000.
