PO­LICE have seized some unique fly fish­ing pins from Tas­ma­nia and other lo­ca­tions in East Vic­to­ria Park be­lieved to be stolen prop­erty. If this col­lec­tion be­longs to you, call Can­ning­ton Po­lice Sta­tion on 131 444 and quote IR 010517 2307.


KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on an ag­gra­vated bur­glary on Ra­son Place on Mon­day, April 24. The bur­glary took place about 11.30pm, when the 55year-old male oc­cu­pant was wo­ken by three men who forced their way into the house. The men made demands of the victim be­fore he was as­saulted, then rum­maged through rooms in the house and stole cash. A 33-year-old male neigh­bour who came out of his house af­ter hear­ing noises was also as­saulted by the men. It’s be­lieved they left the area in a light-coloured 4WD with a black DVG cover on the rear spare wheel. The 55-year-old man re­ceived in­juries to his head, face and body, while the 33-year-old neigh­bour re­ceived a sig­nif­i­cant in­jury to his arm. Up to five men may have been in­volved in the in­ci­dent, and all were wear­ing dark-coloured cloth­ing.

IF PEO­PLE have track­ing ca­pac­ity on their phones and their iPads, al­ways make sure it's ac­ti­vated. Ev­ery day if we find some­thing that's been knocked off with po­ten­tial track­ing, we'll ring up the owner and say if you get an ac­ti­va­tion, ring po­lice. We cre­ate a job and we dis­patch a ve­hi­cle to the lo­ca­tion where that de­vice is track­ing. We had one re­cently where there was a track­ing com­po­nent on a stolen Ap­ple prod­uct. When it pinged at a south­ern lo­ca­tion, we were able to work out that there was a well-known crook there. – Of­fi­cer-in-charge John Waghorn
