Around 11.40am on Friday 3 January 2020, a man entered an electrical store on Jull Street Armadale and began looking at laptop computers. A staff member approached him and a long conversation was held between the two discussing a particular laptop worth $3,000. The male unplugged the lap top saying ‘I will take this one’ and proceeded out of the store, past staff and a security officer. A male customer who was inside the store at the time, saw what had happened and followed the man to Armadale Train Station where he retrieved the laptop computer and returned it to the store undamaged.


Police have released images of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.


The man is described as: Light skinned, thin build and a dark goatee beard. He was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap, white t-shirt with the words ‘Never look back’ on the front and dark shorts.
