Two men charged over burglary spikes in Two Rocks and Yanchep

POLICE have made two arrests this month in relation to home burglary spikes in Two Rocks and Yanchep.

Acting Sergeant Grant Hazell said there was a series of daytime burglaries around Two Rocks in the first week of October, which resulted in police charging a local man (22) with several offences.

“A large quantity of property was recovered and returned to the victims,” Sgt Hazell said, praising the community “for their vigilance and assistance during the investigation”.

Sgt Hazell said the focus then shifted to ‘old Yanchep’ where investigations into similar burglaries resulted in police charging another local man (25) with numerous offences.

He is due to appear in court on November 4.

“Police recovered nearly $5000 of stolen jewellery as a result of the arrest,” he said.

“Yanchep Police will continue to conduct high-visibility patrols in vulnerable areas and as ever, urge the public to report all suspicious activity, however minor it may appear.”
