Melbourne man to face nine charges
A 24 year-old Melbourne man was arrested in Deniliquin on Wednesday and bail refused on nine charges relating to falsified documents and theft of a car.
At the time of going to print yesterday, the man was still awaiting an appearance before Deniliquin Court, police said.
Deniliquin Police Inspector Jy Brown said the man was arrested about 3pm Wednesday following a routine random breath test roadside stop.
‘‘Deniliquin Target Action Group police stopped a South Australian registered Honda Jazz in Harfleur St in west Deniliquin for a random breath test.
‘‘After speaking to the driver, police conducted a search of the car.’’
Police allegedly found equipment capable of making false Medicare cards, driver’s licences and identification cards.
Subsequent inquiries revealed the car had allegedly been stolen from Victoria in October.
Insp Brown said the man was charged with nine alleged offences including receiving property stolen outside NSW, displaying unauthorised number plates and driving with a cancelled licence.
He was also charged with allegedly dealing in property suspected to be used in the proceeds of crime, possess or interfere with unique identity, possessing identity to commit an indictable offence and making or possessing equipment used to make false documents.
