Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Nagam­bie po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a tip­per truck val­ued at more than $80 000 from a stor­age yard.

The ve­hi­cle, which con­tained $2000 worth of tools, was stolen overnight on July 19 af­ter thieves en­tered the locked premises and drove the ve­hi­cle away.

Lo­cal po­lice to­gether with crime scene of­fi­cers are con­tin­u­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the Nagam­bie po­lice sta­tion or Crimestop­pers.

Road­side fire

Sey­mour po­lice were alerted to a ve­hi­cle fire in De­latite Rd last Thurs­day night.

By the time po­lice and CFA were called by neigh­bours, the ve­hi­cle was well and truly alight.

It ap­pears the ve­hi­cle may have been de­lib­er­ately lit and valu­able ev­i­dence was col­lected from the scene.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.

Club cops dam­age

Lo­cal sport­ing clubs are this week re­pair­ing dam­age to a clu­b­room caused by an un­known of­fender.

It ap­pears the dam­age oc­curred over the week­end. Noth­ing ap­pears to have been stolen.

CCTV to pro­vide clues

Crime scene of­fi­cers are in the pro­cesses of re­view­ing CCTV footage of a lo­cal busi­ness af­ter thieves at­tempted to steal a ve­hi­cle.

The ve­hi­cle’s win­dow was smashed, how­ever the of­fender was un­able to gain ac­cess, leav­ing the owner with a dam­age bill for a new win­dow.

Po­lice hope the CCTV im­ages will pro­vide an ac­cu­rate de­scrip­tion of the of­fend­ers.

In­stalling in­ex­pen­sive cam­eras in and around prop­er­ties are a great way to de­ter would-be thieves and great ev­i­dence for po­lice dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Road rager

There was a brazen road rage in­ci­dent in Sey­mour this week af­ter a driver was mo­tioned to stop by an­other ve­hi­cle.

The fe­male vic­tim was ap­proached by the male, who punched her to the side of the face, caus­ing bruis­ing and swelling.

The vic­tim re­ported the in­ci­dent to po­lice, who are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing and con­fi­dent of a timely ar­rest.

Busi­ness bur­glary

A busi­ness has been the vic­tim of a bur­glary and theft this week af­ter of­fend­ers gained en­try into the build­ing by smash­ing a front win­dow, caus­ing more than $1000 in dam­age.

Busi­ness own­ers are work­ing closely with po­lice to pro­vide a list of stolen items and cash that has been taken dur­ing the bur­glary.

Am­bu­lance tar­geted

An am­bu­lance has been bro­ken into and valu­able life-sav­ing items stolen in Sey­mour this week.

Po­lice hope the of­fender has a sud­den case of re­morse and hands the items in to po­lice.

Wheeled away

In an­other theft from ve­hi­cle this week, four wheels have been stolen off a ve­hi­cle parked at a busi­ness ad­dress.

The busi­ness own­ers were no­ti­fied by staff and hope the dis­tinc­tive tyres will be able to be lo­cated.

Credit card stolen

A Broad­ford man has had his credit card stolen and used at an ATM where $400 was with­drawn from his ac­count.

Po­lice said the bank and vic­tim are as­sist­ing them with their in­quiries.

Luck­ily no fur­ther trans­ac­tions oc­curred as the vic­tim can­celled his card.

Miss­ing some­thing?

Po­lice are seek­ing the own­ers of items that have been handed in to the Sey­mour po­lice sta­tion.

A metal de­tec­tor was found in Avenel last week. If the brand, colour and lo­ca­tion where the de­tec­tor was left or lost can be pro­vided to prop­erty man­ager Jan Williams, the owner can come and claim it.

A three-wheeled, winged scooter was found in Sta­tion St, Sey­mour.

Any­one who thinks it may be theirs will need to pro­vide Jan with a de­scrip­tion, in­clud­ing the make, colour and any dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures, as well as the lo­ca­tion of the item when it was last seen.
