Thieves leave premises empty-handed

Offenders have forced the rear door of the United Service Station in Nagambie.

Offenders this week gained access to the building but left empty-handed after failing to find any cigarettes on the premises.

They opened every door and drawer in the kitchen area and behind the service counter.

CCTV footage has been supplied to police, who are continuing their inquiries.

●A Toyota Landcruiser ute has been stolen from Broadford.

It appears the offender broke into the vehicle before using alternate methods to start it, as the owner still has the keys.

Local police and Highway Patrol members are on the lookout for the ute so it can be returned to its rightful owner.

●Seymour police are investigating a $50 theft from a motor vehicle in Emily St after a number plate was stolen from a vehicle for sale.

The plate was noticed missing by staff, but it is unclear when the theft occurred.

●A workman’s wallet including $90 cash was stolen from a cabin at a caravan park this week.

The workman was asleep when his cabin was broken into and his wallet that was stored in his lunch bag was stolen.

It is a frustrating time for the man, who now has to replace all his licences and personal bank cards.

●Being observant is always a good quality to have as a policeman, and this week it paid off for local Seymour police after attending an address to speak to a male.

While the man was lounging about, police noticed marijuana next to him and questioned him about it.

The man made full admissions and will be appearing in court at a later date to face drug usage charges.

●Building materials valued at $1500 have been stolen from a house under construction in Anzac Ave, Seymour.

The thieves entered the property at the rear, as the external walls were still under construction.

The thieves stole a roll of carpet and unsuccessfully attempted to steal an air-conditioning unit.

●Police are on the hunt for a driver heading north on the Hume Hwy at Kilmore last week who allowed his passenger to throw a two-litre plastic carton of milk at an oncoming bus, breaking the windscreen and injuring the bus driver.

Luckily for the passengers, the driver was able to pull over quickly and no-one else was injured.

Such a display of foolish behaviour is concerning for police and the community alike.

●Anyone with information regarding any criminal activity is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
