Woman charged by WA Police after tow truck stolen from Lansdale business

A woman has been charged with stealing a tow truck from a northern Perth business in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A white Hino tow truck was stolen from a commercial premise on Attwell Street in Landsdale about 3.20am.

The 32-year-old woman has been charged with one count of stealing a motor vehicle and one count of possessing a prohibited drug.

Police were alerted to suspicious activity at the business and, upon arrival, spotted the truck was leaving the premises.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, however, the driver allegedly fled the scene prompting a pursuit.

The chase was then terminated a short time later after driving conditions were deemed unsafe.

The tow truck was later found abandoned on Gnangara Road.

WA Police found the woman inside a red Volvo on Attwell Street in Landsdale and suspect she may be linked to the burglary.

She was taken into custody at the scene and later questioned by authorities.

The woman was released on bail and is set to appear in court at a later date.

A WA Police spokeswoman said inquiries are ongoing to locate a male driver and passenger.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at crimestopperswa.com.au.
