Police Wrap – 25 October 2010

By 25 October 2010 15

1. It’s important to practice drink driving while young:

A 14-year-old female drink-driver apprehended by police in Kambah early on Saturday morning had been out to practise her driving “while the roads were quiet”.

About 1.15am police were conducting a mobile patrol on Bacchus Circuit Kambah when they observed a green-coloured Mazda utility with four young persons on board. Police stopped the vehicle and performed a roadside screening test on the 14-year-old female driver.

The young person returned a positive result to the screening test and was conveyed to Tuggeranong Police Station where she returned a reading of 0.115 grams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.

As the driver does not hold a licence she is subject to a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.02 which makes her reading nearly six times her legal limit. All the young people in the vehicle appeared to be affected by alcohol and told police they had been drinking at the Kambah oval.

The female driver, from Weston Creek, was detained at Tuggeranong Police Station until she could be released into the custody of her mother. She has been summonsed to appear in the ACT Children’s Court at a later date.

2. Oracle Murder Arrest:

An 18-year-old Belconnen woman alleged to be connected with the death of André Le Dinh was arrested today by ACT Policing Criminal Investigations (CI) detectives (Monday, October 25).

The body of Mr Le Dinh was located within his fourth floor apartment on College Street, Belconnen, on Thursday, May 20. The post-mortem revealed he died from severe head injuries.

Late this afternoon, the 18-year-old woman was taken into custody at a Belconnen apartment and conveyed to the Winchester Police Centre.

She was questioned for two hours before being conveyed to the ACT Watch House where she was charged with conspiracy to commit a robbery, aiding and abetting a robbery, and trafficking in a prohibited substance. She will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

Further charges against the 18-year-old and others are being considered as detectives continue their investigations. Police also are continuing to seek assistance from members of the public in this matter by urging them to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Did the King of Heaven’s Most Masterful Keeper of the Sacred Grove’s 0 BAC for learners and P-platers come into effect yet? If so (or when it does), does/will this mean that you have a higher BAC limit if you have no license to speak of than if you do the right thing and get your learners?

That’s “GOLD! Parenting™” right there…

Mum probably passed out on the couch after drinking with the kid and her friends… Wonder if they breath-tested mum when they released said child into her custody?

That’s going to really screw up the person who writes the press releases…

“As the driver does not hold a licence she is subject to a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.00 which makes her reading, um… infinity(?) times her legal limit.”

This is exactly what I was thinking!!

Well, some people produce their own alcohol thanks to internal flora.

A zero tolerance law could be discriminatory (in a very small number of cases).

14 yrs old, driving while unlicensed, at 1.15 am, intoxicated.

May as well inscribe her name on the Mully Cup now, to save time.

Someone arrested for driving on Bacchus Circuit? How apt!

Skidbladnir: Some people can’t see – they’re also not allowed to drive. (Not that I support the 0 limit, 0.02 doesn’t seem to be an issue).

You are all so judgmental…. “bad parenting”, “oh the mum’s probably drunk on the lounge”, do any of you even have kids? or if you do are they totally perfect and never get up to mischief?.
You must of been a bunch of perfect kids too, never lying to your parents to get up the mischief.
Parents can only do so much, like ringing parents to check if they are staying there etc…
Sometimes kids sneak out at night, you cannot be with them 24 hours a day.

Maybe the kid hasn’t had good parenting, but sometimes even kids that that do have a great upbringing with great parents and a nice house and go to Private schools turn out to be ratbags too.

Don’t be so bloody judgmental.
