Hunt for sta­tion sling­shot shooter

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE front of Cairns’s main po­lice sta­tion be­came a crime scene af­ter a sling­shot was used to fire a mar­ble at the en­trance and shat­tered the glass on Satur­day night.

Po­lice in­side re­port­edly heard a loud “crack” just be­fore 7pm at the Sheri­dan St sta­tion and saw the front slid­ing door smashed.

Fears had ini­tially been held that a firearm was in­volved but a po­lice spokesman said a small glass ball, sim­i­lar to a mar­ble, was found at the scene and was likely from a sling­shot.

No one was in­jured.

Po­lice are ex­am­in­ing se­cu­rity footage at the sta­tion and other nearby cam­eras.

The spokesman said no sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or sus­pects had yet been iden­ti­fied.

Po­lice have called for any­one with in­for­ma­tion to phone Po­licelink or Crimestop­pers.
