Word on the street is that there could be a ‘baked bean bandit’ on the loose in Mount Hawthorn and locals have turned full Law & Order on the socials.

On Thursday, WA Incident Alerts posted a picture of a pile of beans on a doorstep, saying that “kids are unloading a can of beans on people’s doorsteps, ringing the bell and running off – all while someone films it.”

Similar incidents were reported by more Mt Hawthorn residents….

A quick scan of the chat thread and it seems the kids are copying a TikTok prank called ‘beaning’…

The comments are exactly what you’d expect…

  • “I’m not really sure how to react to this! It’s funny definitely but annoying at the same time because now this person has to clean up.”
  • “it’s all fun and games until 80 year old grandma steps outside for a look and ‘whoops’ .. broken hip, life ruined…”
  • “I just popped into mount hawthorn PS. They are doing a bit of follow up.”
  • “When they’re caught, these little w–kers should be made to buy a whole heap of baked beans (from their own money) and then be marched to Food Bank to donate the lot. While some people go hungry, some think it’s a cool social media lark to waste food.”
