MIRRABOOKA Police have charged a woman for allegedly breaking into the Northern District Medical Centre in Balcatta at the weekend.

About 11.50am on November 26, the woman and a man allegedly forced their way through the security gate that led to the medical suite and allegedly smashed the glass panel of the entry door.

Acting Senior Sergeant Curtis Rowe said a witness called police while the pair were in the process of entering the surgery.

“As a result of a search in the area, they were sighted by our officers; they fled and it resulted in a foot chase with them,” he said.

“During the chase, they both dropped some property including a backpack and bum bag.

“The female was apprehended after she (allegedly) jumped fences in the rear yards (of homes) in Tuart Hill.

“The male we are still trying to ascertain his identity.”

Sgt Rowe said the woman was charged with burglary, committing offence and stealing and had an outstanding arrest warrant from Geraldton.

The woman appeared in court on November 27 and was remanded to reappear on January 11.
