Stolen BMW found

By johnboy - 12 January 2011 4

This in from ACT Policing:

A stolen BMW involved in three separate pursuits across Canberra on Monday night was recovered by police in Scullin yesterday (Tuesday, January 11) following information received from a member of the public.

Around 5.50pm, police attended Ulm Place, Scullin where they located the stolen blue coloured BMW with ACT registration plates (YEX 52D). The car had some exterior damage, and was towed to the ACT Exhibition and Management Centre for forensic examination.

Superintendent Mick Calatzis from North District praised the member of the public for their vigilance in identifying the stolen vehicle and reporting it to police.

“The actions of this member of the public demonstrates how vital the assistance of the community is in assisting police with our investigations,” Superintendent Calatzis said.

“We encourage all community members to report any suspicious behaviour, activity or vehicles in their neighbourhood to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Any information you provide can be made anonymously, and may be the missing piece police need to identify an offender or recover stolen property.”

good pickup. I guess when you have lost your licence already, why not steal a car.

I wonder how the ‘member of public’ knew to report the vehicle – unless, of course, the car was parked outside the house of a known ‘non driver’.

I dunno? Maybe it was dumped on their yard and it wasn’t theirs?

Either that or they read the paper, or watch local news, or read this website, or like to check crimestoppers, or have a family member or workmate or priest, who partake in one or more of those things.

I thought I remembered that street name from somewhere.
I wonder if the driver involved in this incident was in any way invloved?
