Drug supply intercept
The Seymour Divisional Tasking Unit have charged another man, following on from earlier arrests and the charging of a man and woman in Seymour regarding numerous drug and other offences.
A 40-year-old Broadford man was arrested after he was intercepted in his vehicle in McCormack Cres, Seymour on October 19.
A search of his car turned up a large amount of drugs and cash.
He was charged with trafficking methylamphetamine and was remanded in custody.
Sergeant Bob Derrett of the Divisional Tasking Unit said this latest arrest was the culmination of an investigation into local drug trafficking.
‘‘We have been able to arrest and charge the alleged supplier, which means we have interrupted the supply of drugs coming into the area,’’ he said.
‘‘By continuing to target these high level drug dealers, we hope to reduce the incidence of drug use.’’
Former school site fire
Police are seeking information regarding a grass fire on a large vacant block (previously the site of Seymour East Primary School) in Delatite Rd, Seymour.
The fire started around 4 pm on Friday and burned about 200 sq m before the CFA were able to extinguish it.
Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze.
Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity around the area on Friday afternoon is asked to phone Senior Constable Sam Thomas at Seymour police on 5735 0200.
Wallet lost and found
Christmas has come early for one lucky Seymour resident, following on from last week’s appeal to find the owner of a wallet containing a large amount of cash.
The owner contacted police and her property has been returned to her.
The resident had long given up hope of ever finding the money, so was keen to speak with police after reading the appeal.
Property officer Jan Williams would now like to see the same result for a smart phone she has in her stores.
The phone was handed to police recently after it was left in a taxi.
Anyone with information should phone Jan at Seymour police on 5735 0200.
Another excessive speeder has been caught, with his vehicle now impounded for 30 days.
The 40-year-old South Australian man was detected travelling at 160 km/ hour on the Seymour-Tooborac Rd, Hilldene on Friday.
He will now be facing Seymour Magistrates Court charged with excessive speed and driving at a dangerous speed.
