Arsonist caught red-handed

May 14, 2018

Seymour police are investigating two motor vehicle thefts overnight on Sunday.

A 56-year-old Seymour woman has been charged with several criminal damage by fire offences after she was allegedly caught in the act recently. 
Two off-duty policemen saw a woman acting suspiciously near the historic wooden jail in Emily St, Seymour, and upon further inspection noticed a small fire near the building.  
A previous fire had been lit at the same location a week or so earlier. The woman has also been charged with lighting several other small fires around the area; two relating to incidents in April where trees had been set alight in Anzac Ave and Goulburn St.
Stolen trailers
Two trailers were recently stolen from the front yards of the owners.
One, a homemade registered grey tandem was taken between midnight and 1am on Sunday, May 6, from McKenzie St, Broadford, and a motorcycle carrying trailer was removed from a Young St, Nagambie house. This occurred between noon Saturday, May 5, and Monday morning.
Car break-in
A car was tampered with at a Mallet Cres, Seymour, house overnight on May 5. Entry was forced into the car and it was then pushed out in to the street, where it was found.
