Nagambie police are investigating the theft of a tipper truck valued at more than $80000 from a storage yard.

The vehicle, which contained $2000 worth of tools, was stolen overnight on July 19 after thieves entered the locked premises and drove the vehicle away.

Local police together with crime scene officers are continuing the investigation.

ā—¸Anyone with information is asked to contact the Nagambie police station or Crimestoppers.

Roadside fire

Seymour police were alerted to a vehicle fire in Delatite Rd last Thursday night.

By the time police and CFA were called by neighbours, the vehicle was well and truly alight.

It appears the vehicle may have been deliberately lit and valuable evidence was collected from the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.

Club cops damage

Local sporting clubs are this week repairing damage to a clubroom caused by an unknown offender.

It appears the damage occurred over the weekend. Nothing appears to have been stolen.

CCTV to provide clues

Crime scene officers are in the processes of reviewing CCTV footage of a local business after thieves attempted to steal a vehicle.

The vehicle’s window was smashed, however the offender was unable to gain access, leaving the owner with a damage bill for a new window.

Police hope the CCTV images will provide an accurate description of the offenders.

Installing inexpensive cameras in and around properties are a great way to deter would-be thieves and great evidence for police during investigations.

Road rager

There was a brazen road rage incident in Seymour this week after a driver was motioned to stop by another vehicle.

The female victim was approached by the male, who punched her to the side of the face, causing bruising and swelling.

The victim reported the incident to police, who are now investigating and confident of a timely arrest.

Business burglary

A business has been the victim of a burglary and theft this week after offenders gained entry into the building by smashing a front window, causing more than $1000 in damage.

Business owners are working closely with police to provide a list of stolen items and cash that has been taken during the burglary.

Ambulance targeted

An ambulance has been broken into and valuable life-saving items stolen in Seymour this week.

Police hope the offender has a sudden case of remorse and hands the items in to police.

Wheeled away

In another theft from vehicle this week, four wheels have been stolen off a vehicle parked at a business address.

The business owners were notified by staff and hope the distinctive tyres will be able to be located.

Credit card stolen

A Broadford man has had his credit card stolen and used at an ATM where $400 was withdrawn from his account.

Police said the bank and victim are assisting them with their inquiries.

Luckily no further transactions occurred as the victim cancelled his card.

Missing something?

Police are seeking the owners of items that have been handed in to the Seymour police station.

A metal detector was found in Avenel last week. If the brand, colour and location where the detector was left or lost can be provided to property manager Jan Williams, the owner can come and claim it.

A three-wheeled, winged scooter was found in Station St, Seymour.

Anyone who thinks it may be theirs will need to provide Jan with a description, including the make, colour and any distinguishing features, as well as the location of the item when it was last seen.

Jan can be contacted on 57350200.
