HUNT ON FOR ROGUE ARCHER

Dan­ger­ous ar­rows found in fam­ily back­yards

Dalby Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

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

Rd.

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 Rd.

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