Flower jailed for crime spree
BLAKE Flower, who stole a ute and multiple firearms from an Axedale property in November last year, has been sentenced to 12 months behind bars.
Flower fronted the County Court on Friday, where Fairfax Media reported he pleaded guilty to 14 charges including theft, attempted burglary, burglary, theft of firearm, being a prohibited person using a firearm, and shortening the barrel of a longarm, as well as traffic offences.
Flower fled the Axedale scene in a stolen ute, but crashed into a tree. He attempted to get away in another vehicle where he drove to the Axedale Golf Course.
Flower wanted to store the firearms at a property in Castlemaine, but on the way ran a red light in Kangaroo Flat and hit two other vehicles, it was reported.
Flower will face the court again in December 2019 for judicial monitoring.
