POLICE seized more than $200,000 worth of jewellery during a raid on a Perth second-hand dealer on Tuesday.
More than 900 items were taken from the Hay Street Mall jewellers which police will allege were stolen.
A subsequent search of a residential address in Thornlie uncovered further jewellery and paperwork related to the business.
As a result of the raids, a 36-year-old Thornlie man has been charged with laundering and possessing a prohibited weapon; the latter charge relating to an extendable baton that was found at the jewellers.
The man’s second-hand dealers licence has been cancelled, and he will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on May 2.
The police have put together a booklet of the seized jewellery for people to check out for missing bling, which will be available to view at http://www.police.wa.gov.au
