Police Wrap – 6 June

1. Try not to collide with houses…

    A 19-year-old Lyneham man will face court today after the stolen vehicle he was driving collided with a house early this morning (June 6).

    About 1.10am general duties police patrolling in Lyneham attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the stolen van, which subsequently failed to stop. A short pursuit ensued, ending when the driver failed to complete a right hand turn. The vehicle mounted a gutter and went through a small garden bed before colliding with a house and coming to rest in the main bedroom.

    The house sustained extensive damage however there was no one inside the residence at the time of the incident.

    The driver of the vehicle was uninjured and taken in to custody at the scene, a breath test revealing he was driving with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit. He was arrested and charged with driving a stolen motor vehicle, driving whilst disqualified, driving in excess of the prescribed concentration of alcohol and failing to stop on police direction.

    Police were involved in a second pursuit later in the morning (June 6) after attempting to pull over a silver Subaru sedan on Athllon Drive in Kambah about 3.00am. The vehicle, and a second blue Subaru station wagon, were both pursued by police before driving in separate directions.

    Police continued to pursue the silver Subaru, which slowed on Vansittart Street before the driver exited the still-moving vehicle and ran from police. The unoccupied vehicle continued down the street before colliding with a house at very low speed. The house suffered no damage as a result.

    Police, including the K9 dog squad, chased the offender however were unable to apprehend him. Both vehicles were confirmed stolen, with the silver Subaru seized for forensic analysis.

    Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

The secret to driving on the road is to aim straight for the houses… and miss.

My prediction for this productive member of society, slap on the bot bot, rinse repeat.

A friend of mine is selling the Lyneham house that was crashed into – looks like they’ll be taking it off the market now!

What exactly is the legal limit for driving a stolen vehicle while disqualified? :)

I would love to know what speed the Subabru slows to in Vansittart Crescent, Kambah? As most people fly around those slow points (at the 50/60k speed limit)& that includes articulated buses

There is a certain thing to be said for straight to gaol in solitary for first serious offence. Learn ’em good first time and you won’t get a repeat. Current system only learns ’em that it’s ok by the Courts for their behaviour.

Gees. I am amazed at the conclusion that you have all jumped to. It says the cars collided with houses, and you assume the driver was at fault. How have you ruled out the possibility that the houses failed to give way?

You’re being very silly, Of course the first house was stationary. It was unoccupied. Unless the brakes weren’t on properly.

Hopefully the insurance companies will find a way to recover losses from criminals who have been successfully prosecuted.

The pieces of shit who deliberately do this sort of thing need to be beaten, raped, shot and burnt.
