Police Wrap – 16 July 2010

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).

The pale cream bluetongue case that they appear to be stealing is light beer!

Awesome – at least they won’t be over the limit on their next ram-raid

“Police pursued the youths but failed to apprehend them”.

Dear god, please let the youths still be carrying boxes of beer and breezers for the sake of hilarity.

What are the parents doing? It is 4am in the middle of winter in Canberra and none of these boys are wearing coats!

I’m sure mummies and daddies out there can recognise those clothes, they aren’t exactly that discreet. Plus the police would probably have got some good finger prints from the smart idea not to wear any gloves and they were on foot they couldn’t have gone too far carrying all those 4pks and cases..

The Pringles are definitely the dumbest thing they pinched – these guys don’t look to be over 18, so why steal the one thing in the store you can legally buy?

Stoner bandits.
