Police dogs Slam and Jimmy sniffed out two offenders in incidents in Forrestfield and Bassendean last night.

Sergeant Gerry Cassidy said that at 7.30pm on Tuesday night police on patrol in Maida Vale tried to stop a road trail bike but were unsuccessful.

Information from a member of the public lead the police to Harold Way, Forrestfield where police dog Slam found a 21-year-old man hiding at a house construction site.

He will be summoned for riding the motorcycle without a driver’s license. In Bassendean, police responded to a report of suspicious activity by several men in Troy Street just before 11am.

When police attempted to speak to the group a 30-year-old man ran off.

He was chased and located by police dog Jimmy and police found he was wanted on a return to prison warrant.

A man from Shoalwater called police at 12.40am when he spotted a man breaking into the tavern at the Shoalwater Shopping Centre on Safety Bay Road.

Police arrived on the scene, but the man ran off, with police unable to locate him despite an extensive search.

He is 5’10” or 177cm tall, with a slim build wearing track pants and a sweat shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000
