Reasons to avoid contact with the police if you have outstanding warrants

By johnboy - 6 May 2011 3

ACT Policing has arrested a 42-year-old Campbell man in relation to a number of unresolved warrants in South Australia.

Around 10.45am on Thursday (5 May), City Patrol general duties members were conducting a patrol around Braddon when they had cause to speak to the man. While conducting checks on his identity, police identified that the man had three unresolved arrest warrants in South Australia.

The man was arrested by ACT Policing and communication with police in South Australia identified they would be seeking to extradite the man back to South Australia to answer the warrants.

North District Superintendent Mick Calatzis said that the arrest of the man shows that the cooperation between police jurisdictions is alive and well.

“Police around Australia work closely with each other and arrests and extraditions like this prove that our communication systems and working relationships across all jurisdictions are positive and working well” Superintendent Calatzis said.

The man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning. Police will be opposing bail until members from South Australia Police can attend the ACT Magistrates Court to apply for extradition.

So with such a detailed story, why was it omitted why the guy was wanted in the first place? Other than because he was wanted..

Did he have 3 unpaid speeding fines or was he wanted in relation to 3 violent murders or armed robberies? One would think if our local boys had caught a criminal of significance theyd be bragging about how big their catch was.

Another conspiracy theory huh …… That is why these matters go before a court, before a Magistrate to determine if this person is extradited. If it is for “speeding fines” (which I would almost guarantee they would not be) the Magistrate would rightful tell the plod to “jog on”

Normally, if another jurisdiction is seeking extradition, it is for serious matters.

Maybe you just don’t deserve to know.
