Toilet thief caught short
A 20-YEAR-OLD Heathcote man thought he’d be flush with cash when he was stealing portaloos.
But his plan went down the gurgler after he was caught and arrested by a nightshift patrol in William St, Wallan in the early hours of September 4, allegedly with another portaloo on board.
Police believe the local had been stealing portaloos to sell online through buy, swap and sell websites.
The portaloo he had with him had been stolen from a worksite in Hidden Valley, but others had previously been carted away from worksites in Broadford and Kilmore in late July.
The man has been charged and will be appearing in court later in the year.
