Tharwa bridge BBQ

johnboy 19 May 2013 6

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after a car arson in Tharwa damaged important road infrastructure for local residents on Friday night (May 17).

Around 11.30pm a light blue 1991 Mitsubishi Magna station wagon (New South Wales registration WPB 384) was driven onto the Gudgenby River bridge along Smiths Road in Tharwa and deliberately lit. The vehicle was completely burnt out and caused significant damage to the bridge.

A quick response from Tharwa Rural Fire Service team removed the vehicle from the bridge before the car was fully engulfed.

A group of 10 to 15 men all aged between 18 to 21, and about five vehicles were seen in the area at the time of the offence. Two of the vehicles were white utes, one with a P Plate displayed. A bright blue Commodore or Ford Falcon sedan was also seen.

Police are looking to interview any previous owners of the Magna.

Anyone who witnessed the arson and saw the offenders around the bridge at the time of the incident are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via

Given the inconvenience of having the bridge out of action, I wouldn’t be surprised if Tharwinians adopt a shoot-first-and-ask-people-not-to-touch-the-bridge-later approach.

Hopefully they manage to off themselves before they kill someone.

Most likely fuelled by alcohol/drugs and boredom.All it takes is one fcukhead to come up with the idea and 10 to 15 young sheep to act it out and voila,the damage is done.
