Police Wrap – 16 July 2010

By johnboy - 16 July 2010 29

1. Erindale turd storm:

ACT Policing has released a series of security images taken from inside a Wanniassa liquor store during a recent aggravated burglary.

Police were patrolling in the Erindale area around 4am on Sunday, July 11, when two loud noises were heard from the direction of Denigan Street.

Two police vehicles quickly attended the location, where a group of up to six youths were seen fleeing through the Erindale College carpark. Police pursued the youths but failed to apprehend them.

Inspection of the liquor shop’s front doors revealed that an improvised explosive device had been used to force entry, which is a considerable concern to police as it presents a very high risk of injury to those making or using the device, and anyone nearby.

“Making ‘backyard’ explosive devices for any purpose is fraught with risks and dangers,” acting South District Superintendent Rod Anderson said.

“People who make these devices have little or no idea of the volatility of the material they are dealing with. As a result, there is the very real danger of someone being badly injured or killed.”

Anyone who may have recognise the persons in these images, or may have seen any suspicious persons in the area of the Erindale Centre and Erindale College in the early hours of Sunday, July 11, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or provide details via the website at Information can be provided anonymously.

2. Fried in Fisher:

ACT Policing arrested a man in Fisher today (July 16) after a violent altercation in which the man resisted arrest, fought with the officers, and had to be subdued with OC spray and handcuffs.

The incident began after police received a triple zero call for assistance regarding a domestic altercation at a residence in Fisher around 10:15am.

Police attempted to take a 23-year-old man into custody and in the process, the man violently resisted police, head-butted one officer and spat on another. One officer suffered a suspected broken nose. Both officers required assessment, treatment and tests at the Canberra Hospital.

The male offender was subdued using Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) spray, before being handcuffed and taken to the ACT Watch House.

The 23-year-old Fisher man was charged with two counts of harming a Commonwealth official and possessing a prohibited substance.

The male will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow (July 17).

Should have used a basket for those smaller items. That is what they are for, after all.

To my year 7 teacher who said I would amount to nothing and would never make it on TV…. IN YOUR FACE!!!!!!!!

They’re risking their liberty (by ending up behind bars) and they stole BEER?

They’re going to struggle if they’re planning to make a career out of this…

There’s a Homer Simpson in the making here. I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer… Or blow up a property just to get to a case.

Disposable 11:11 am 16 Jul 10

No gloves or balaclavas? These guys look like first year thieves to me.

They are wearing fairly distinctive clothing too. They will be busted for sure.

I agree with everyone else; why would you steal beer and premix over spirits and cigarettes?

LOL @ breaking in to steel beer and Cruisers.
How much easier would it be to take bottles of spirits instead?
Much better value too.

They are stealing the pink cruisers though so they are probably picking up some presents for the girl Sheryl.

Bacardi Breezers make you a big hit with the bogan laydeez!

astrojax 9:23 am 16 Jul 10

all that effort for such shite booze? at least go to the locked cabinets and liberate the islay malts and krug – sheesh!

these bogan buffoons deserve everything they get – especially the bacardi breezers…

lolz @ trying to make a speedy getaway with a carton on your shoulder. Hopefully they’re really hungover when the police find them.

Don’t forget the Pringles!

Thumper 8:44 am 16 Jul 10

Who cares, one day, one of these noobs is going to blow his hand off and we’ll all be able to laugh at him.

Oh, and mums and dads out there. Have a good look. Is this one of your little darlings?

S4anta 8:41 am 16 Jul 10

Yes blowing up a front door with home made explosives is very, very bad. But once inside, i think liberating barcadi breezers is worse.
