    A 29-year-old woman was arrested by ACT Policing yesterday after she was found with an amount of drugs in her possession.

    Police from the Territory Investigations Group executed a search warrant on the female’s vehicle in the area of Disney Court in Emu Ridge about 11.00am after she was observed allegedly selling a substance thought to be heroin.

    Approximately 10 grams of white powder was located on the female, who was transported to the Regional Watch House and charged with Traffic in a Controlled Drug Other than Cannabis. She was released on bail and will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

2. More on the Spence stabbing:

    ACT Policing is continuing to investigate an incident at a residence in Spence which occurred yesterday (June 2) where a 22-year-old man received a number of stab wounds.

    Investigations indicate the man was stabbed at a residence in O’Neill Street about 4.45pm before stumbling to the Spence shops and collapsing.

    ACT Ambulance attended and treated the man at the scene before transporting him to Canberra Hospital.

    The man underwent surgery. He remains in a critical condition however his injuries are not considered to be life threatening.

    Forensics has completed their examination of the scene.

    Inquiries are continuing to locate the offender.

    Anybody who may have witnessed this incident or who has any information is urged to contact police on 131 444, or anonymously if they wish via Crime Stoppers.

3. The ongoing reign of terror down south:

    ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an armed robbery in Lyons on Monday June 1, 2009.

    About 10pm the male victim was walking along Launceston Street, Lyons when a brown older model vehicle pulled up beside him. One male remained in the vehicle while three others got out and surrounded the victim.

    Two of the offenders threatened the victim with knives before he handed over his wallet. One of the offenders then snatched the victim’s mobile phone from his hand before running back towards the vehicle.

    The offenders then returned two of the victim’s cards and his mobile phone before getting back in the vehicle and driving away.

    The male offenders are described as being about 18-20-years-old, approximately 5’10” (178cm) tall, of Caucasian appearance and of slim build. All three offenders were wearing hooded jumpers, one was white and another was dark green in colour.

    Police are urging anyone who may have seen a brown older model vehicle or witnessed any suspicious activity or persons in the area, around the time of the offence or who knows the identity of the offenders to contact Crime Stoppers.

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

They’ve been doing the “how Belco are you” quiz and realised that they needed to represent.

they haven’t done anything wrong, or made an ID, have they?

Witnesses who feel directly threatened or feel they’re exposed enough to be potentially threatened have this wierd tendency to increase their chances of survival by not actually telling the entirety of their recollection of events.
(Considering you have 24 other people ‘standing around’ either witnessing or taking part in events, how many of those people are with the victim, how many against, and how many of those would like to protect their friend?)

Also, naming people who might not actually have witnessed the actual stabbing but get named as ‘witnesses’ (increasing chances of reprisals against them) probably makes other people who have seen something less likely to come forward.

Not really responsible behaviour, nor supportive of the efforts of Johnny Law Enforcement.

Congratulations on the Canberra Times for publishing the witness names and places of work. Hope they gave them some Kevlar vests for protection at work today.

bad form by the CT, but why would the witnesses need kevlar vests? they haven’t done anything wrong, or made an ID, have they?
