Three people have been arrested following a crime series in Port Pirie over the past few months.

During August and September, Port Pirie Police have been investigating a series of break-ins and thefts in the Port Pirie area. Offenders have been entering homes and stealing jewellery, power tools and other property.

On Friday, September 17 Police seized more than 100 items of stolen property found in a Risdon Park home, and arrested a 33-year-old woman residing at the address.

The following week police searched another two Port Pirie West premises, where they located further stolen items linked to the crime series, and arrested a 27-year-old man.

And last Wednesday a third suspect from Risdon Park also aged 27, was arrested.

All three faces the Port Pirie Magistrates court for unlawful possession, serious criminal trespass and theft among several other charges, and have been remanded in custody.

Investigations are continuing and if anyone with information that may assist, is encouraged to contact Port Pirie Police.
