Man charged with of­fences

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

A 51-year-old Toolamba man has been charged with firearm of­fences fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent late last year.

Tatura po­lice Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Ross Adams said po­lice were called to a dis­pute at an ad­dress in Toolamba, and as a re­sult, lo­cated a num­ber of un­se­cured firearms and a home-made firearm.

‘‘The male was sub­se­quently charged with a num­ber of firearm of­fences,’’ he said.


Lead Sen Const Adams praised the gen­eral be­hav­iour of mo­torists over the Christ­mas and early New Year pe­riod.

‘‘We is­sued a num­ber of speed­ing in­fringe­ments and other traf­fic fines in­clud­ing two for un­li­censed driv­ing and two for use of an un­reg­is­tered mo­tor ve­hi­cle, but gen­er­ally speak­ing, it was rea­son­ably quiet,’’ he said.


On Fri­day, Jan­uary 9 at about 2 pm, a chain­saw ‘‘lit­er­ally fell from the back of a small white truck’’ cross­ing the Goul­burn River Bridge, Murchi­son.

Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Ricky Keast said the truck turned right into Steven­son St and was head­ing to­wards Tatura when the chain­saw fell off the rear and landed vir­tu­ally at the feet of a woman, stand­ing near the Murchi­son Post Of­fice.

‘‘She has since handed the chain­saw into Murchi­son Po­lice Sta­tion,’’ he said.

‘‘The owner of the chain­saw can con­tact ei­ther Murchi­son Po­lice Sta­tion on 5826 2222, or their lo­cal po­lice sta­tion, and once own­er­ship can be es­tab­lished, they will be re­united with their prop­erty.’’
