Police Wrap – 30 September 2010

By 30 September, 2010 9

1. Pursuit into Page:

ACT Policing has arrested two male youths aged 17 and 15, both residing in the northern suburbs of Canberra, today (September 29) following a short pursuit in Belconnen.

Around 2.20pm Criminal Investigations’ Crime Targeting Team officers observed a blue-coloured Toyota Celica turn from Lathlain Street onto Benjamin Way in Belconnen. Suspicious of the apparent age of the driver the officers activated emergency lights and siren of their unmarked police vehicle.

The vehicle turned west into Benjamin Way from Belconnen Way and the officers engaged in a pursuit. As the vehicle passed Schumack Street, Weetangera, the vehicle crossed the gravel median strip to the wrong side of the road when the officers immediately terminated the pursuit. Shortly after, the vehicle lost control and spun. The alleged offenders ran from the vehicle into Page.

The driver of the vehicle was apprehended after a short foot pursuit and the passenger was apprehended a short time later from his home.

During this incident, the officers were well supported by Belconnen General Duties and the K9-Team who establish cordons and searched for the second offender.

No one was injured during the pursuit and no vehicles sustained any damage. The vehicle was later found to have been stolen from the Belconnen Premier Inn.

The male youths will appear before the ACT Children’s Court tomorrow morning (September 30).

2. Stupid little turds:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to damage of Lanyon Homestead in Tharwa which occurred overnight (Thursday, September 30).

The offenders entered the grounds between 11pm last night and 7am this morning. They damaged and sprayed graffiti on the newly painted walls of an out building of the homestead and slashed the marquee.

Anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in the vicinity of the homestead overnight are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

If only there were some way to ensure natural selection could take its course without the possibility of innocent people suffering.

Public floggings should be reintroduced.
For a second offence, compulsory same sex marriage just to bugger things up followed by compulsory euthanasia for third and subsequent offences.

Hah! I’m first in line to see if they have the two imacs and laptop stolen from my office!

A good argument for mothers eating their young at birth.

Maybe give them an overnight stay in the Sex offenders jail to scare them straight (!?)

Why would they drive on to the wrong side of the road? Do they know how dangerous that is? I’s amazing that no one had been killed during one of these pursuits.

I wonder what will happen to them in court. Is stealing a car considered a serious offense?

I reckon the Police did a good job by catching them.
