Arrows fired at homes could be cat­a­strophic

Chinchilla News - - WEST -

PO­LICE are seek­ing in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to a se­ries of arrows lo­cated in Dalby prop­er­ties over the past few weeks.

Seven arrows made of a graphite shaft, which are heav­ier, faster and harder than those made from wood, have been found in prop­er­ties around streets sur­round­ing Hedge Road.

While the ma­jor­ity of the arrows had been fired into back­yards, one of the arrows was found lodged in a roof.

The ar­row had a ra­zor edge and had caused struc­tural dam­age to the roof. The ra­zor-edged ar­row is char­ac­ter­is­tic of those used for hunt­ing.

Po­lice were in­formed of a third in­stance, when they re­ceived a call af­ter mak­ing a post in the Neigh­bour­hood Watch Dalby Face­book group.

Po­lice said the arrows would have cat­a­strophic ef­fects if they were to come into con­tact with a hu­man or an­i­mal.

It is be­lieved the ma­jor­ity of the arrows were fired in the night.

The ar­row be­lieved to have trav­elled the fur­thest was lo­cated 215 me­tres from Hedge Road.

Po­lice urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
