Siege in Duffy

By 23 February 2007 14

Just spoke to my mum in Duffy, and she says there’s some sort of siege up in Duffy (at the white flats across from the shops), with police dogs, snipers and all the rest of that sort of malarky.

Anyone know anything more?

UPDATED: The ABC has a piece.

Wow. It’s usually such a sleepy suburb. I could be watching it all unfold from my balcony if I weren’t at work.

No further word from your mum? I’ve got to head home in 90 minutes, want to know if it’s safe.

No, no further news – just more cops. Suspect Burrinjuck Cres, Glenmaggie Street and surrounding areas will be shut off. And Duffy a quiet, sleepy suburb? Where were ya on January 18, 2003, or two Saturday arvo’s ago – 80mm rain in about half an hour!

Twenty minutes later and all over – apparently will be on ABC tonight (based on me old lady’s observation of situtation and ABC truck up there)!

Apparently all it is, is that Dick Cheney is dropping in soon at the Duffy Shops to pick up a meat pie.
