Police Wrap – 25 April

By johnboy - 25 April 2009 31

1. Deakin Pharmacy Heist:

    ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery at the Deakin Pharmacy in Duff Street this afternoon.

    Just after 3.00pm a male entered the pharmacy and produced a knife, fleeing the store shortly after with a sum of cash.

    The offender got into a waiting vehicle, a white 1998 Mazda Bravo tray back utility bearing ACT registration YAB59E. Police have confirmed this vehicle was stolen from a Kingston car park earlier today.

    A short time ago police were involved in a short pursuit with the vehicle through Manuka, however eventually lost sight of it.

    The offender is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 30 years old with a medium build, dark hair and about 5’9” (175cms) tall. Police suspect him to be a passenger in the stolen vehicle, being driven by an unknown male.

    Officers from the Territory Investigations Group have taken carriage of the investigation and are currently speaking with witnesses.

If you can help police call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Yeah he should be ashamed. Fancy not burning through a high pedestrian area like Manuka as fast as he could. Fancy slowing down at intersections to reduce the chance of a collision and staying on the correct side of the road. Ashamed indeed.

I just reread this thread. Got away from the cops in a 1998 Mazda Bravo?!?! The cop doing the pursuing should be bloody ashamed.

Hmm. 3 cops appeared and fluttered round in an agitated manner! Damn, I sure didn’t predict that. I just expected one.

I would applaud the use of BRAVOs by TIGers that sporting NAB license plates.

quote comment=”199480″]More speed cameras, because of the bloody cyclists.

Make bike riders register their push bikes…. and display a rego plate…. and charge double for those stupid recumbent (?) bikes.[

And there you are as always ant.

Vehicle mounted rocket launchers is the key. If you engage in a pursuit the vehicle will be destroyed.

Spideydog 11:38 am 25 Apr 09

Did you predict that ??!! lol

Spideydog 11:38 am 25 Apr 09

Predictable 😉

ant 10:44 am 25 Apr 09

Any minute now, someone will come into this topic and be predictable.

Maybe the cops should consider using Mazda Bravo’s as their pursuit vehicles.
