Toi­let thief caught short

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

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.
