On Saturday, June 20, a 28-year-old Tatura woman was arrested for possessing a small amount of cannabis and ice.
Leading Senior Constable Simon Hutchings said the woman resisted arrest, hindered police and was eventually secured and taken to Shepparton Police Station where she continued to hinder police and ‘‘play up’’ when placed in a cell.
He said she was charged with two counts of possessing a drug of dependence, hindering police, resisting arrest and acting in a way prejudicial to gaol.
Leading Sen Const Hutchings said the woman was bailed to appear at Shepparton Magistrates’ Court on July 31.
Tatura police attended a sin- gle vehicle roll-over on Bendigo/Rushworth Rd, Waranga Shores, at 12.30 pm on Tuesday.
Leading Sen Const Hutchings said the driver, a Benalla woman, was injured and was taken by ambulance to the Shepparton Hospital.
‘‘Inquiries into the accident are ongoing,’’ he said.
Following a number of burglaries and thefts from motor vehicles in recent weeks, not only in Tatura but throughout the region, Leading Sen Const Hutchings has reminded residents and motorists to secure their properties and vehicles at all times, in particular, trades people who may have valuable tools in the back of their work vehicles.
‘‘Make sure valuables are removed from cars and tools are locked up in a secure manner,’’ he said.
‘‘Residents should be aware of what is happening around their homes and those of neighbours, and report any suspicious activity to police immediately.’’
A Mooroopna woman was intercepted by Tatura police in Echuca Rd, Mooroopna, on June 21 and was issued a penalty notice of $738, for use of an unregistered motor vehicle.
The Greater Shepparton Police Service Area has launched Facebook page — Eyewatch (Google Eyewatch Shepparton).
Greater Shepparton PSA crime prevention officer Leading Senior Constable Glenn Gibson said the primary objective of the Facebook page was to use social media to facilitate the sharing of information between police and the Greater Shepparton community.
‘‘The page can be used by police to distribute local crime information, as well as providing an open forum for police and our community,’’ he said.
‘‘Also, it is to raise awareness of local issues, in an effort to reduce crime and increase involvement in community safety.’’
Leading Sen Const Gibson said page administrators would collect content from police and post on the page.
‘‘How engaging and effective the page is, will depend on the content, and all local police,’’ he said.
