Four face theft and drugs charges
Four people will face court after two vehicles were allegedly stolen from Bamawm and later found with firearms and methamphetamines inside.
About 5am on Tuesday, August 17, a property owner heard a disturbance as two vehicles were allegedly stolen.
Shortly after, the victim and an associate came across a vehicle they believed was involved in the burglary and apprehended two of the alleged offenders in a citizen’s arrest before police arrived.
More than three hours later at Timmering, after a tip-off from a member of the public, police found two other alleged offenders hiding in long grass near the second stolen vehicle.
According to police, when the vehicles were searched, firearms and methamphetamines were located.
A Kyabram man, 28, and a Rochester woman, 35, were charged and bailed.
A Girgarre woman, 29, and a Kyabram man, 31, were remanded in custody and will appear at Echuca Magistrates’ Court.
