Police investigating Kensington theft and Bentley fraud cases


KENSINGTON Detectives are appealing for help to identify a man they believe may be able to assist them with a theft.

On February 23 about 6.30am, a man tried to steal a motorbike parked in the driveway of a house on Banksia Terrace in Kensington.

The man walked down the driveway, took the bike off the stand and pushed it down the driveway before a neighbour saw and approached him.

The man dropped the bike, damaging the side of the vehicle. He then ran away.

The man, dark-skinned, aged 30-35, medium build with dark facial hair, was seen jumping into the passenger seat of a black Subaru Impreza which was being driven by another man, who was described as tan-skinned, clean-shaven with short hair.


POLICE are appealing for information involving a fraud case.

They have released CCTV images of a man who allegedly stole a credit card from a vehicle in Mt Lawley before fraudulently purchasing items from a store along Albany Highway in Bentley on January 28 about 9am.

The same man, 25-30 years old, medium build and light-skinned, is believed to have made further fraudulent transactions with the same card in Girrawheen and Cannington.

He arrived and left on a dark bicycle and was wearing a light grey hoody with black text on the front, black shorts and runners.

He was also carrying a bright yellow tote bag.
