IF you see any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour in your lo­cal area, en­sure you call 131 444 or your lo­cal polic­ing team as soon as pos­si­ble.

CCTV footage from the By­ford in­ci­dent.

BY­FORD PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic or in­for­ma­tion af­ter a ve­hi­cle used to al­legedly take petrol without pay­ing in By­ford was al­legedly used in an­other of­fence. About 2.30am on Fe­bru­ary 2, a man pulled up at a ser­vice sta­tion in By­ford in a sil­ver Holden sedan. He got out of the car and filled up the ve­hi­cle with Pre­mium petrol, put the pump back on the bowser, got back in the ve­hi­cle and drove away without pay­ing. In­quiries have re­vealed a ve­hi­cle with the same plates al­legedly evaded po­lice in the Withers area on Jan­uary 8. The car was last seen trav­el­ling on Bus­sell High­way to­wards Capel. The plates on the ve­hi­cle were false. The man is de­scribed as light-skinned, 30-35 years old, about 180cm tall with short brown curly hair and wear­ing long pants with a belt. He has dis­tinc­tive tat­toos on his left fore­arm and writ­ing across his back be­tween the shoul­der blades. Po­lice have re­leased CCTV im­ages of a man who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. Call Crime Stop­pers and quote 8411.

LANG­FORD PO­LICE are search­ing for a man who might be able to as­sist with en­quiries into a stolen card al­legedly used to com­mit fraud. Be­tween 6.30-7am on De­cem­ber 31 , a man on a bi­cy­cle was seen smash­ing the pas­sen­ger win­dow of a ve­hi­cle on Cham­plin Way in Fern­dale. The man rode off af­ter re­mov­ing a wal­let from in­side the ve­hi­cle. A short time later, a credit card from in­side the wal­let was used to fraud­u­lently pur­chase items from a Lang­ford con­ve­nience store. The man is de­scribed as dark-skinned, 20-25 years of age, about 170cm tall with a mous- tache and a thin build.
