Bug artist wanted by police
Senior Constable Gavin Williams has some property in his possession that he would like to see returned to its owner.
In September last year, some A3-size drawings were handed into the police station (see picture).
Someone would have spent a lot of time and effort on these drawings, depicting ants and he would prefer they go back to the artist and not be destroyed.
If you know who the artist may be, phone Gavin at Seymour Police on 5735 0200.
The Hume Fwy features in this week’s edition, with police being called to several incidents.
One of these included a single vehicle collision on the freeway at Wandong, where the car lost control in the wet weather and collided with the wire barrier.
It occurred about 5.30 pm on April 21, with the driver being conveyed to hospital with moderate injuries.
Investigations are continuing into another collision on the Hume Fwy at Broadford, about 12.30 am on April 28.
