1. Yarralumla ram raid?

    ACT Policing is appealing for witnesses after a burglary at a business premises in Yarralumla on Wednesday evening (March 18). A sum of cash was taken from the Lady Denman Drive location.

    Police are asking members of the public to be on the lookout for a white van which may have sustained front end damage during the incident. The vehicle was seen acting suspiciously in the vicinity of the burglary about 6.30pm on Wednesday.

2. Death in Wanniassa:

    ACT Policing is investigating the suspicious death of a 26-year-old man at Wanniassa Friday March 20, 2009.

    Just before 7.20pm ACT Ambulance were called to an address in Carr Crescent following reports that a man had collapsed at a house and was unresponsive. ACT Policing attended the residence where paramedics were attempting to revive the man however he was declared deceased at the scene a short time later.

    A cordon has been established around the residence and AFP Forensics is on site. The circumstances surrounding the man’s death is not clear at this stage. The death is being treated as suspicious and officers from the Territory Investigations Group are investigating.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au

Poor JP (if that is the dearly departed). Who is going to beat up the junkies for owed money now?

Picture a young Mark “Jacko” Jackson (but dumber and uglier) and you get the picture.

Re the Wanniassa business, I’m sensing a future flame of the week to occur on this thread in the next week or so.

Unsure, there is a degree of literacy required to use the internet 🙂

No they have a few other buildings along the lake side of the road on the north side of the bridge. That said, I didn’t know any of that side of the lake would be classed as Yarralumla; Acton or Weston Creek, I would have thought.

What business was it at Yarralumla that got burgled? The main one I can think of on Lady Denman Dr is the National Zoo and Aquarium. Or there is a horse riding school. Why don’t the police actually release info like the name of the business and what actually happened (presumably a ram raid) so that people can actually put two and two together and report what relevant stuff they might of seen. What’s the point of being secret squirrel about it all?

They are probably sifting through the drugs and firearms cache 😀

I think there is more to it then a “overdose” the police are still onsite

realityskin 1:18 pm 21 Mar 09

It wasn’t an overdose it was a result of being kicked the shit out.

Also, if ambulance crews are called to a ‘collapse’, why did the police respond? Do police respond to all overdose-related collapses that the ambos are called to as well now?

You reckon it’s an overdose why?

Not to be nit-picking, but isnt Lady Denman drive actually in Yarramundi, not Yarralumla?

Police routinely respond to Ambulance calls. I’ve had to make a few and in my experience, the police always roll up within minutes of the ambulance. And Good on them, I say!

Tooks 1:11 pm 21 Mar 09

Don’t think it’s appropriate to name him at this stage…

26-year-old man at Wanniassa was PEISLEY, Jamie

Rather unsavoury character.
