Police Wrap – 15 May

By johnboy 16 May 2009 54

1. The police view of the Rush Hour bust:

    ACT Policing arrested one man, seized a vehicle and issued around 45 Traffic Infringement Notices and 20 defect notices after a targeted operation on a large group of drivers suspected to be performing burnouts and street racing.

    The operation was performed late on Thursday evening (May 14) in the Kowen Forest carpark off Sutton Road. Around 110 vehicles were known to be at the location.

    Members of ACT Policing’s Traffic Operations team sealed off the access road around 10pm and began a patrol of the area, noting the strong smell of burnt rubber.

    Police believe the group was engaged in burnouts and street racing at the location. A 21-year-old Ainslie man was taken into custody charged with possession of cannabis, possessing an offensive weapon, and going equipped for a theft. He will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on May 25,2009.

    A stolen motor vehicle, a Nissan 300X sports coupe registered in Victoria, was recovered from the location.

    Police are urging members of the community who are aware of illegal street racing or similar activity in their area to report it. They can request police attendance by calling 131-444, or report it – anonymously if they wish – by ringing Crime Stoppers.

2. Rydges Security Failure:

    ACT Policing arrested two 16-year-old male youths after an incident at a private function at Rydges Hotel in Civic Friday 15 May 2009.

    Police attended the location around 11.10pm after reports that the two youths had attempted to enter the party without invitation. They then allegedly assaulted the two security staff that had been present at the event.

    One of the security staff received a laceration to the head and another received a hand injury.

    One of the alleged offenders was later located and arrested at the rear of the hotel by members of ACT Regional Beats team while the second was arrested a short distance away by a City Patrol officer.

    Both were conveyed to the Regional Watch House at City Station and later released into the custody of their parents.

    Police are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the incident and can provide further information to contact Crime Stoppers.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.

OK everyone, back on topic or leave it alone.

rottweiler 11:28 am 23 May 09

thanku granny wasn’t really biting back at you. I just think that others need to lay off on the spelling and grammar mistakes of other and try to listen to what they are trying to say disagree or agree with them thats it.

I was told about this site and have enjoyed reading it on a daily basic but of late don’t wish to comment as I get hammered for spelling and grammar not for what I’m saying about the topic on hand.

Sorry in a bad mood today but I have had enough of seeing myself and others beening put down by other on this site for spelling and grammar GET OVER IT.

Thumper 11:28 am 23 May 09

rotty,

If people here correct your spelling surely that has to be a good thing in the end as you won’t make the same mistake again.

It’s not a put down man 😉

Here’s a new topic for you How does it affect people when they are contantly put down for simple things such as bad spelling and poor grammar?

Hmmm. But have you ever wondered how your your poor English expression affects those who are trying to read it?

You have the “right” to post whatever you please. And we have the “right” to criticise it.

Granny 11:13 am 23 May 09

I wasn’t putting you down, rottweiler. I actually do believe that personality and character is more important than IQ or academic achievement any day. I’m just a housewife from Ngunnawal, and a bad housewife to boot. I don’t have any tertiary qualifications or impressive high faluting occupation.

I was fortunate to have a talent for spelling, but I’ve actually never judged people that way. There are a lot of educated people on this forum that tear me to ribbons despite the fact that I can spell … apart from the odd typo.

rottweiler 11:07 am 23 May 09

ok well some people can’t help spelling mistakes and bad grammar.

Here’s a new topic for you How does it affect people when they are contantly put down for simple things such as bad spelling and poor grammar?

All they wanted to do was have their voice heard in some way an soon as their do you put them down for bad spelling and poor grammar

I can only see it as boosting your ego what does it do for their ego’s?

You’d do better if you put those bones down while you are using the computer. Throwing bones about is all very well but it’s not conducive to good spelling.

“yourselves”

Thumper 10:53 am 23 May 09

No, but seriously, if I make a spelling mistake I hope someone picks me up on it. Simply because I won’t make that mistake again.

rottweiler 10:47 am 23 May 09

Just can’t help yourselfs can you, well I’m glad you have enjoyed belittling people and it has boosted your ego.
