Ngunnawal burglars disturbed

By johnboy - 27 April 2011 22

Three young males have been arrested for aggravated burglary in Ngunnawal yesterday (Monday, April 25).

About 5.30pm the complainant arrived to his home on Yumba Avenue where he disturbed three young males in his living room. One of the offenders threw a kitchen knife at the complainant as he fled the room, which missed and hit the wall.

The offenders immediately fled the scene before police were called. Police patrols located the offenders minutes after with the stolen property, where the offenders attempted to flee.

All three offenders were arrested and were conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face court at a later date. At this time two offenders have been charged with bail opposed with police awaiting forensics confirmation before preferring charges on the third male.

Any member of the community who sees people acting suspiciously is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

There has been a lot of this activity in Ngunnawal and Gungahlin lately so it is great news that these scum have been caught. Could have turned really nasty though given the knife act……………………

Lets hope that the clean up rate continues – and congratulations to the local boys in blue for a great catch!

What does our limp-wristed magistrature think is reasonable for 12 burglaries committed against innocent Canberra residents?

“I have said that the total sentence should be two years and 10 months, but I am not going to require you to serve any more time in fulltime custody. I am releasing you today …”

They suspend the worthless little scumbag’s sentence.

Nice one.

The sentence should be trying to survive five rounds with the reigning Australian heavyweight boxing champion.

So how does the average joe go about letting the magistrates know that this is getting beyond absurd now? Just because someone claims a troubled past, they get carte blanche to break in, throw knives, and get off with a suspended sentence? I certainly don’t want a cretin ransacking my place and chucking a knife at me – and I don’t give a rats whether said cretin was abused as kids or not.

He was always going to be let off as soon as this was mentioned…..

‘BM has an indigenous heritage. His mother’s father came from the Noongar people in Western Australia.’

Who cares! Probably the same gang of three that tried to steal my car when we lived in Ngunnawal and they ran off when my 50kg wife ran outside in her nightie!!!!!

The courts will get the message when someone takes the law into their own hands and kills an intruder! I would have no hesitation offing a knife wielding burglar in my house, no hesitation at all!

Once they’re in their twenties and still committing burglaries, they’ll start getting stiffer sentences (a year or two at a time). Great, isn’t it?

Come now Captain, surely you’re not insinuating the accused used his indigenous background to influence the magistrate are you??

Reading through pages of decisions it seems you have to be a really dedicated offender to get any time at all. I wonder what Magistrates are on to have such a rosy view of the world?

People work hard for what they have and Judges just let thieves have a rails run at it all.
