Arrests after stolen items posted online

TWO men have been arrested after posting stolen items for sale online.

A Karrinyup woman saw items that were stolen from her Newborough Street home for sale on Gumtree and organised to meet the seller on June 21.

The woman gave the details to police who attended the house on Calais Road in Wembley Downs.

There they found allegedly stolen property, including several games consoles, which the 42-year-old man said he received from a Scarborough man.

Officers then went to the Scarborough home and arrested a 35-year-old man after finding more stolen goods.

Both men confessed to their crimes and were arrested, with the Wembley Downs man due to face court on July 22 over receiving stolen property and the Scarborough man to attend court on July 4 charged with burglary and stealing.
