ARSON Squad de­tec­tives have made a call out for in­for­ma­tion about a Redcliffe build­ing fire. The fire caused an es­ti­mated $150,000 dam­age. Po­lice and the De­part­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices were called to a build­ing on Great East­ern High­way at 3am on Fri­day, July 21. The build­ing is a her­itage-listed com­mer­cial prop­erty. De­tec­tives would like to speak to the driver of a white util­ity seen driv­ing along Great East­ern High­way near the build­ing around 3am. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the fire – or who may have seen sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or peo­ple in the area be­tween 2.30am and 3.30am – should call Crime Stop­pers. Re­wards of up to $50,000 are avail­able for in­for­ma­tion that leads to the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and con­vic­tion of an ar­son­ist.


KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing a man sus­pected of a rob­bery in Victoria Park on Fri­day, Au­gust 4. About 11.15am a 19-year-old man was walk­ing on Teague Street to­wards the Victoria Park train sta­tion. A white sedan ap­proached from Dun­can Street and a man got out and walked up to him, snatched his bag and ran back to the car. The car drove off to­wards Axon Av­enue. Po­lice have re­leased a com­pos­ite im­age (be­low) of the man, who is de­scribed as of medium build, about 185cm tall in his late 40s with olive skin, a long face, gaunt cheeks and dark brown hair. He was wear­ing a loose-fit­ting black jumper with a Red Bull logo on the up­per right chest and grey track suit pants with black and grey jog­gers. The driver is de­scribed as be­ing fair-skinned, in his mid-30s to early 40s, wear­ing a black cap and had a left side lip pierc­ing.
