Two Southwest Men Charged

Extortion Charges in Busselton

Two Southwest men have been charged in relation to an investigation into the extortion of money in West Busselton in April 2018.

It's alleged that on Friday, 20 April 2018 a 36 year old man met two men to discuss a debt they alleged they were managing for another party.

One of the men then assaulted the victim before demanding that he withdraw money to pay some of the alleged debt.

The victim was told to take the money to an address in Busselton where he was met by the other man and handed over the money.

Detectives executed a search warrant on that address in Busselton, and as a result the two men have been charged by Major Fraud Squad Detectives.

A 30 year old Australind man was charged with:

- Demanding Property by Oral Threats

- Possess a Prohibited Drug 

- Fail to Obey Order given by an Officer 

- Possess Prohibited Weapon

A 33 year old man from West Busselton was charged with:

- Demanding Property by Oral Threats

Both appeared in the Bunbury Magistrates Court on Friday 4 May 2018.
