Car de­stroyed by fire

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether a burnt car found off the Col­li­gen Creek Rd near De­niliquin is the car re­ported stolen from De­niliquin last week.

The burnt car was dis­cov­ered on Mon­day by a pass­ing mo­torist, who spec­i­fied the fire was no longer ac­tive, and was re­ported again the fol­low­ing day when he saw it was still there. The num­ber plates were miss­ing. Po­lice sus­pect it is a Mit­subishi Magna re­ported stolen from an east De­niliquin home on Novem­ber 29, but are yet to for­mally make the link.

The miss­ing Magna was taken from the drive­way be­tween 8.30am and 8.40am and po­lice said the keys may have been taken from in­side the home.

Drugs charge

A 43 year-old De­niliquin man has been charged with re­sist­ing po­lice and pos­ses­sion of a pro­hib­ited drug af­ter be­ing stopped by po­lice in west De­niliquin last Fri­day night. Po­lice said they saw the man, who they say is ‘‘known to po­lice’’, walk­ing in Dec­imus St about 8.30pm and stopped to speak with him. Af­ter show­ing some re­sis­tance to po­lice, of­fi­cers ad­vised the man he would be searched and say it prompted stronger re­sis­tance which threat­ened to turn vi­o­lent. The man was even­tu­ally hand­cuffed and po­lice al­legedly found a sy­ringe and spoon af­ter a quick search of the man. In a more thor­ough search at De­niliquin Po­lice Sta­tion, po­lice said they found a small bag con­tain­ing what they be­lieve to be metham­phetamines in the man’s pants.
