Authorities are searching for a man who held up a bottle shop armed with an axe in Yanchep, north of Perth, last night.
Police say the man entered the Ocean View Bottle Shop about 7:00pm and demanded cash.
He then fled with the money.
The man is described as 165 centimetres tall with a thin build and fair skin.
To the south of Perth, police are searching for two men believed to have used to a vehicle to smash through the front entrance of a pharmacy.
Police say the men used a four wheel drive utility to crash through the front of the Serpentine Pharmacy, before stealing various medications.
The men were last seen heading towards Mundijong, on Richardson Street.
And authorities have spent the night clearing debris off part of the Great Northern Highway, after a truck lost its load near Cue yesterday afternoon.
It is believed the prime mover was travelling north on the highway carrying a 30 tonne loader, when the driver swerved to avoid an animal just south of Cue.
Police say that caused the truck's trailer to sway, and the loader broke free of its chains and crashed onto the road.
