‘The fact is all apartments and houses, whatever their number of levels, have to be locked and secured at all times,’ Senior Sergeant Kate Vivian said.

Overnight on September 29, an unlocked glass sliding door on a second floor allowed thieves to take keys to a silver, 2013-model Ford Focus hatchback that had not been recovered late last week.

Between September 22 and September 29, a thief attempted to get into the second storey of a Churchill Avenue, Subiaco house when a tool was used to partially remove a flyscreen and open a window.

A thief climbed to the third floor of Regis Aged Care, Hollywood Village, Nedlands before forcing a sliding door and searching storerooms but stealing nothing, overnight on September 26.

‘We are looking for links between these crimes because they are similar,’ Sgt Vivian said.
