Police kept busy with numerous crimes

June 22, 2017

It’s been a busy week for police at Seymour this week, with numerous thefts, damages and other offences being reported.

●A man in Highlands Rd has reported his trailer was stolen from his front yard.

The man, who was home at the time but didn’t hear anything, says his trailer was stolen while he was sleeping.

The trailer is described as a 6x4 box trailer, blue in colour.

Any person with information about its whereabouts is asked to contact the Seymour Police Station.

●There was another trailer theft this week after gates were forced open to a property in Loco St where a large tandem trailer was stolen from the yard.

The trailer is said to be registered, grey in colour and worth more than $4500.

●A third trailer was also stolen, this time from Anzac Ave in Seymour.

Again the gates to the property were cut and a grey box trailer valued at $1200 was stolen.

Trailers seem to be the target items of opportunistic thieves during past months.

Please ensure gates are locked and properties are secured in an effort to try and prevent becoming a victim of this kind of crime.

●A young girl had her scooter stolen from Station St, Seymour by two youths.

The scooter was left outside a store while the girl visited her grandmother.

She was only a short distance away from the scooter when she saw two boys grab it and ride away.

The victim was upset and is helping police with their inquiries in an effort to have the scooter returned.

●Detectives at Seymour are investigating an $8000 theft of valuable saddles and saddlery items from a property in Seymour this week.

Offenders entered shedding on the property and removed the items.

The saddles are distinctive in brand and style and inquiries are continuing in an effort to locate the offenders.

●A car was stolen from Martindale Cres and found dumped and on fire on the outskirts of Seymour a short time later.

Witnesses state they heard a vehicle doing burnouts before seeing flames coming from the same direction.

CFA and police were on the scene a short time later, however they were unable to locate the offenders.

An investigation into this matter is continuing.

●There was some great policing by night-shift members in Seymour this week after they came across a man walking on the Goulburn Valley Hwy, about 20km from Seymour.

The man was near a burnt-out vehicle and was arrested for other outstanding matters.

While being interviewed for these matters, a resident living near where the man was located found his car had been broken into with intent to steal.

The male has been charged with these offences and will appear in court at a later date.
