Drug sup­ply in­ter­cept

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

The Sey­mour Divi­sional Task­ing Unit have charged an­other man, fol­low­ing on from ear­lier ar­rests and the charg­ing of a man and woman in Sey­mour re­gard­ing nu­mer­ous drug and other of­fences.

A 40-year-old Broad­ford man was ar­rested af­ter he was in­ter­cepted in his ve­hi­cle in McCor­mack Cres, Sey­mour on Oc­to­ber 19.

A search of his car turned up a large amount of drugs and cash.

He was charged with traf­fick­ing methy­lam­phetamine and was re­manded in cus­tody.

Sergeant Bob Der­rett of the Divi­sional Task­ing Unit said this lat­est ar­rest was the cul­mi­na­tion of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into lo­cal drug traf­fick­ing.

‘‘We have been able to ar­rest and charge the al­leged sup­plier, which means we have in­ter­rupted the sup­ply of drugs com­ing into the area,’’ he said.

‘‘By con­tin­u­ing to tar­get these high level drug deal­ers, we hope to re­duce the in­ci­dence of drug use.’’

For­mer school site fire

Po­lice are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing a grass fire on a large va­cant block (pre­vi­ously the site of Sey­mour East Pri­mary School) in De­latite Rd, Sey­mour.

The fire started around 4 pm on Fri­day and burned about 200 sq m be­fore the CFA were able to ex­tin­guish it.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are still try­ing to de­ter­mine the cause of the blaze.

Any­one who may have seen any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity around the area on Fri­day af­ter­noon is asked to phone Se­nior Con­sta­ble Sam Thomas at Sey­mour po­lice on 5735 0200.

Wal­let lost and found

Christ­mas has come early for one lucky Sey­mour res­i­dent, fol­low­ing on from last week’s appeal to find the owner of a wal­let con­tain­ing a large amount of cash.

The owner con­tacted po­lice and her prop­erty has been re­turned to her.

The res­i­dent had long given up hope of ever find­ing the money, so was keen to speak with po­lice af­ter read­ing the appeal.

Prop­erty of­fi­cer Jan Wil­liams would now like to see the same re­sult for a smart phone she has in her stores.

The phone was handed to po­lice re­cently af­ter it was left in a taxi.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should phone Jan at Sey­mour po­lice on 5735 0200.

Speed­ster caught

An­other ex­ces­sive speeder has been caught, with his ve­hi­cle now im­pounded for 30 days.

The 40-year-old South Aus­tralian man was de­tected trav­el­ling at 160 km/ hour on the Sey­mour-Toob­o­rac Rd, Hilldene on Fri­day.

He will now be fac­ing Sey­mour Mag­is­trates Court charged with ex­ces­sive speed and driv­ing at a dan­ger­ous speed.
