Man flees to bush

Isis Town and Country - - News -

PO­LICE are ask­ing peo­ple liv­ing near the Bruce Hwy be­tween Childers and Ap­ple Tree Creek to be on the look­out for a man who may be able to help with their in­quiries into an in­ci­dent on Tues­day.

About 7.30pm, a ve­hi­cle sus­pected stolen from Rock­hamp­ton was trav­el­ling south on the Bruce Hwy when it came to the at­ten­tion of a po­lice crew from Childers.

Shortly af­ter, the car and a po­lice ve­hi­cle were in­volved in a traf­fic crash and a man got out of the stolen car and fled into bush­land.

Po­lice from Mary­bor­ough and Bund­aberg – in­clud­ing the dog squad – at­tended the scene.

Po­lice are ask­ing any­one who lives in the area be­tween Childers and Ap­ple Tree Creek to se­cure their ve­hi­cles and re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity.

The cir­cum­stances of the crash are yet to be de­ter­mined, but the po­lice of­fi­cer in­volved was not in­jured.

It is un­der­stood both ve­hi­cles have been dam­aged.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion which could help with the mat­ter are asked to con­tact Crime Stop­pers anony­mously via 1800 333 000 or crimestop­pers.com.au 24 hours a day.

For all non-ur­gent po­lice re­port­ing or gen­eral po­lice in­quiries con­tact Po­licelink on 131 444 or Po­licelink.qld.gov.au.
