Mixed results on Gungahlin burglaries

By johnboy 26 February 2011 7

ACT Policing is investigating six burglaries which occurred on Thursday morning (24 February) in the Gungahlin area.

A number of items were stolen during the burglaries including flat screen televisions, game consoles and cash.

Police located two vehicles believed to be involved in the burglaries travelling together in the Gungahlin area. Both vehicles had earlier been reported as stolen. Police followed both the vehicles but lost sight of them near Northbourne Avenue, heading towards the city.

A shortly time later both vehicles were located outside an address in Ainslie but fled the address when police arrived. Police activated warning lights and siren and engaged the vehicles in two separate pursuits.

A short time later both pursuits were terminated due to the offenders’ dangerous manner of driving. One pursuit lasted for two minutes and reached a maximum speed of approximately 120km/h. The other pursuit lasted one minute and reached a maximum speed of approximately 150 km/h.

One of the vehicles was later found abandoned in Ainslie. The other vehicle, a purple Ford Festiva, is still outstanding.

A warrant was executed on the address in Ainslie where a number of items believed to be stolen were located. Police are continuing their investigations.

Police would like to remind people of the importance of securing their home at all times. For advice on home security please click on the ‘home and personal safety guide’ on the ACT Policing website www.police.act.gov.au

Mixed results? How about NO RESULT!

No mention of them catching anyone, ‘crime spree, in your own time, go on!’

They could have continued the pursuits if you like with the possibility of the crooks killing a few people in the process ….. and then being caught.

I’d say its a win that some victims of crime are getting their property back that otherwise would most probably not be located again. But that’s just me 😉

Oh no, they didn’t catch the crooks within 42 minutes like on telly.

Patience, Captain.

Alas, it seems the morons (note: no apostrophe) have found us, and quiet little Gungahlin is being increasingly hit.

Residents can help by keeping an eye on the basics (as in: locked doors and windows – particularly doors into garages) and keeping an eye on their neighbourhood (as in: don’t just curse and ignore that alarm going off).

Gungahling is a term of endearment for persons from Gungahlin, yes?

Fantastic news that some of these scum have been caught. Gungahlin and Ngunnawal have been subjected to quite a few break-ins in recent weeks so it’s great news that the ‘net’ is narrowing.

Names and photographs of these moron’s should be published in the local papers – and their addresses of course!!!

Now for the rest of them………………………
