Video footage helps with rob­bery in­quiry

Central Leader - - NEWS - By JESS ETHERIDGE

A YouTube video of a Mt Al­bert dairy be­ing robbed may help po­lice find the of­fender.

Po­lice wish to speak with one per­son seen in the video, filmed in the Mt Al­bert dairy on New North Rd on May 20 at 8pm.

The video was up­loaded by a mem­ber of the dairy owner’s fam­ily on May 21.

Se­nior sergeant Glenn Bald­win says po­lice found a group of youths on Car­ring­ton Rd shortly af­ter the in­ci­dent.

A fe­male youth of­fender was iden­ti­fied from the footage, he says, and youth aid of­fi­cers ‘‘took her home and dealt with the shoplift­ing mat­ter’’.

Bald­win says the male of­fender was not lo­cated and his iden­tity re­mains un­known. Po­lice are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing and want to hear from any­one who may have in­for­ma­tion.
