Three Arrested, Stolen Property Recovered at Jamestown


Yorke Mid North police have arrested three people following a break-in at Jamestown on Friday.


At 10am on Friday 16 February, Hallett police attended a Jamestown home following reports of a break-in.

A number of items had been stolen including white goods, electrical items, food and tools.

As a result of investigations, police attended a neighbouring property later that day and recovered a number of stolen property items at the home.

A 58-year-old man from Jamestown was subsequently arrested and charged with serious criminal trespass and unlawful possession.

He was bailed to appear in the Port Pirie Magistrates Court on 26 March.

Further information from that investigation led further patrols to attend and search homes at Jamestown and Owen.

Police located more property believed to be stolen along with ammunition, firearm parts and drug paraphernalia.

As a result of that search, a 47-year-old Jamestown man was arrested and charged with serious criminal trespass, and a 38-year-old woman from Jamestown was reported for firearms offences.

The man was refused police bail and appeared in court today.

The woman will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

Enquiries are continuing in relation to the matter and further charges are expected.
