Car bomb­ing scare

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

TASMANIA’S bomb squad was called to a ru­ral prop­erty in the Derwent Val­ley af­ter al­le­ga­tions of ex­plo­sives be­ing placed in a car.

Po­lice and the spe­cial­ist Bomb Re­sponse Group de­scended on the prop­erty out­side New Nor­folk in Glenora Rd on Fri­day.

The al­le­ga­tion of an ex­plo­sive de­vice in the ve­hi­cle proved to be false. But In­spec­tor Ge­orge Cretu said po­lice were not tak­ing any chances.

“It came on the end of a fam­ily dis­pute and a per­son men­tioned there was gelig­nite in a car, so we had to have the car cleared, but there wasn’t any­thing there,” he said.

A man was ar­rested in re­la­tion to the in­ci­dent.
