With the continual use of GPS tracking systems within the construction industry, Meridian investigators were notified, via the GPS system, of a burglary in the Wellard area following the removal/theft of a plasma screen from a Dale Alcock Homes display home.
Meridian investigators commenced electronic tracking of the plasma screen and dispatched a Surveillance Operative to assist in tracking and identifying the offenders. The plasma screen was tracked to an address in the Orelia area where observations were maintained and Police contacted.
Close liaison with the Mandurah detectives resulted in a search warrant being executed at the address and the recovery of the plasma screen together with other stolen property including a stolen motor vehicle…..all within 3 hours of the burglary being committed!!
