Collision

Nagambie Police attended the scene of a car collision recently where the fronts of two houses were extensively damaged.

It is believed a small four-wheel drive failed to take a slight bend in Suzanne Court about 7.30pm on Monday, April 23, and drove into the front wall of a house.

It is alleged the car then reversed out of the yard and collided with the house directly opposite.

No-one was home at the first house and the occupants of the second house were not injured.

The driver, a man aged 70, received minor injuries.

He was assisted by neighbours, and was taken to a Shepparton hospital.

Investigations are continuing into the cause of the collision.

Drug possession charge

A taser and some methylamphetamine was found in a car after police spoke with driver.

The nightshift patrol saw the car parked in a park off Goulburn Valley Hwy, Seymour, about 1.25am on Sunday, April 22.

The local man, aged 31, is expected to be charged on summons with possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of drugs.

Marijuana possession

A routine licence check by a police nightshift on Friday, April 20 nabbed a Lilydale man.

The 48-year-old was spoken to in Greenslopes Rd, Trawool, about 1am and some cannabis was found in his vehicle. He was charged with possession and use of a drug of dependence and also with unlicensed driving.

Nagambie police also spoke with another driver about 11.10pm on April 20 after he was intercepted driving in High St, Nagambie. A search of this car located an amount of cannabis.

Break-in

Numerous electrical items including a tablet, PlayStation, Xbox and Blue Ray player were stolen from a Martindale St house while the owner was only away from the house for about three hours.

Investigators believe the offender/s may have seen the owner driving away from the house on Saturday evening, April 21, and grabbed the opportunity.

There was an unsuccessful attempt at forcing the rear door of the house before a rear window was smashed to gain entry. A rear yard shed was also forced open and an impact wrench was taken.

Power tools stolen

A large amount of power tools have been stolen from a trailer parked in the rear yard of a house in Penrose St, Nagambie.

It is believed entry may have been gained via a gap in the rear fence sometime between 8pm on Saturday, April 21 and 10am the next morning.
