Chase starts in Shents

From the November 7 Subiaco POST:
Police investigating the theft of an Aston Martin from Shenton Park this week went on a high-speed chase early on Thursday morning after spotting another vehicle being driven suspiciously. The Aston Martin was stolen from the Lake Jualbup area on Monday night.
Actually, I thought it was stolen from outside 1 Harvey Road, two doors down from our house.
Police were on high alert during subsequent night patrols. At 2am on Thursday, Cottesloe police saw a stolen Holden Commodore GTS in Harvey Road, Shenton Park.
Indeed they were on high alert. They asked for permission to park an unmarked police car in our driveway. And seeing a young lad running down the street after being dropped off, entered another property in the street with guns drawn!
An hour later it was spotted in Cottesloe’s Curtin Avenue. The chase led police to Leach Highway, south of the river – they abandoned the pursuit when the driver of the stolen Commodore reached about 250kmh. Police believe the Commodore driver could be connected to recent western suburbs burglaries.
Seems like they know which houses to target. The number of trades vehicles parked in Harvey Road over the last few months might help identify promising houses to burgle ...
