Kwinana Police are seeking information regarding a burglary and fraud incident that occurred at a home along Moston Crescent, Bertam on Saturday 27 April 2019.
Around 5pm an older man and younger boy approached a resident at the address claiming they had run out of fuel and required assistance.
The victim proceeded to assist the two, talking to the older man while filling up the bike with spare petrol. After this, the two people jumped on the bike and left abruptly. The victim went inside and realized his phone and wallet had been stolen. It is believed the younger boy went inside the home while the victim was distracted.
The bank card inside the wallet was used to make fraudulent transactions in various locations including Bertram, Kwinana, Leda and Wellard. The transactions came to a total of over $800.
