Police Wrap – 9 October

By johnboy - 9 October 2008 9

1. The Olims mystery explained:

    ACT Policing has charged a 19-year-old Lyneham man with burglary and theft after a break in at a bottle shop in Braddon yesterday morning (Wednesday, October 8).

    About 3.50am yesterday police attended Olims Hotel Canberra on Limestone Avenue after reports of a burglary at the hotel’s bottle shop.

    Police observed evidence of forced entry and an empty box of premixed alcohol cans on the floor of the store. There was also blood on the glass door and inside the store.

    Police then obtained a search warrant to a residence in Ainslie. The alleged male offender was discovered and found to have a cut on his foot. During the search of the premises police also seized an assortment of alcohol.

    The alleged male offender received treatment at Canberra Hospital and was later conveyed to the Regional Watch House where he was charged with burglary and theft.

    He will appear before the ACT Magistrate’s Court this morning (Thursday, October 9).

Hey Vic Bitterman – I used to have a Uniden digital scanner but couldn’t get it to pick anything up. What scanner do you have?

Bad call newbie, bad call….. I dont think that this part of the thread needs to be here anymore.

I find that comment really tasteless.

The light has just gone out of a father’s eyes forever.

He’ll be taking tranquilisers and sleeping pills just to get by. He will never forget the horror, and will carry his pain until the day he dies.

I can’t believe anyone would try and politicise something like this. I’m sure Jon Stanhope would never sink as low as you have done.

What is it with suicides in Canberra-Queanbeyan lately?? There seem to have been a lot in the last few months.

What is going to happen in the next few months as the recession hits and people start losing their houses and all their super – there will be noone left to vote for Jon and his friends – and the taxes will have to go up again to cover lost revenue due to lower population.

Bummer. Thanks for the info Vic.B, but what a shame.

Well, this isn’t ACT police, but last night on the Captain’s Flat Rd, just after dark, 2 ambulances and a cop car were absolutely flogging along, lights blazing, pedals to the floor. I saw them coming in my rear view and pulled over, and it was notable how fast they were going, especially at kangaroo time.

Anyone know if there was a serious car crash out that way last night?

I was listening to my emergency scanner last night Ant, I believe this one was the suicide of a girl. Her dad came home to find her body. Won’t go into any more details.

stupidity + drug addled desperation = comedy

Clearly, he was irritated at the increased price on pre-mixes (thanks to the new tax), and decided to get himself some the cheap but not-so-easy way.
