The man who burgled into a supermarket to steal wine bottles and bottles of beer before stealing a $200,000 diamond ring and jewellery was caught by police after a three-day manhunt in Perth.

Police said the man, whose name was not released, was identified as 31-year-old Scott Scott Farr.

The man, who police said had stolen $200K worth of jewellery, had been living in the western Sydney suburb of Port Phillip for about three years.

He was arrested in relation to a burglary and robbery in March, after officers stopped him on foot and he was seen driving away from the supermarket.

“He’s been described as extremely clever,” a police spokeswoman said.

Farr was taken into custody on March 14, but was released from custody on bail later that day, and was arrested on April 3.

As the man was being arrested, police noticed a police car parked nearby and approached it to ask for a breath test.

Officers said the driver was able to provide a breath sample.

After Farr was searched and arrested, officers seized his car and searched it for more items.

They found a “huge amount” of items including a diamond ring, a $500K diamond ring ring, $1.3 million in cash, and an additional $100K in cash.

A police spokesperson said the “significant amount” found was valued at more than $200 million.
