Palm tree taken for a ride

A DETERMINED burglar – possibly with green thumbs – stole a 10-metre palm tree from the front yard of a property in Aspendale last week. Its owner was said to be “staggered” by the brazen theft, which occurred overnight Wednesday 3 August in Station St. He told police there must have been “significant activity” in the street while the tree was being removed because of its size and weight. Sergeant Leo Russo, of Kingston police, said heavy lifting equipment would have been needed to remove the $4000 tree. The front fence of the property, which is under construction, was damaged to gain access and truck tyre marks were visible on the roadway.

Machete on bike

A MAN was found with a machete strapped to his bicycle outside Mentone railway station, Saturday night 6 August. Protective services officers saw the weapon in a case taped to the bike’s frame. They also discovered the owner, of Mentone, was wanted

on four outstanding warrants. Police took the 27-year-old to Moorabbin police station and charged him with possessing a prohibited weapon. He was bailed to appear at Kingston Magistrates’ Court in October.

Knives found A FATHER-and-son, of Werribee, were found with knives – including a flick knife – in Patterson Lakes last week. Police intercepted the pair on Wednesday 3 August while they were driving an unregistered car in Gladesville Blvd. The father, who was wanted on two outstanding warrants, had three knives in the car which were seized. The son, 16, was found with a flick knife which was also seized. The pair was taken back to Chelsea police station where penalty notices were issued for driving an unregistered car and possessing controlled weapons. The son was given a caution for possessing a prohibited weapon.

Court over car theft

A CLASSIC Holden car stolen from Southland Shopping Centre while the owner was shopping, 10.30am, 25 July, was found soon after by Kingston detectives at a property in Cheltenham. Three offenders arrested. A 20-year-old Cheltenham woman was charged with theft of a motor car, drug-and-weapon possession and dishonesty offences and bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court, 5 October. A 21-year-old Oakleigh South man will appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court, 2 September, charged with theft of a motor car, and a 26-year-old Parkdale man will be charged on summons with the same offence.

Fake note

POLICE urge residents and shopkeepers to be careful after a fake $50 note was used to buy a gas cylinder at Chelsea Heights last week. A man bought the $20.95 cylinder from the Wells Rd Mitre 10 store, Tuesday 2 August, and handed over the note. CCTV footage is be assessed.

Police say it is not known if the man knew the note was counterfeit. It was said to be a “reasonable copy” of the real thing.

Church violated

EDITHVALE Uniting Church was burgled, overnight Friday 5 August, in what was said to be the first robbery at the Clydebank Rd premises in the past 40 years. Police said the offenders used a screw driver to jemmy open a fire exit door and enter the sacristy behind the altar. They rummaged through drawers leaving items on the floor and threw glasses at a wall. It is not known what was stolen.

Studio hit

THIEVES forced open the front door of a dance studio in Chelsea Heights last week and stole two boom boxes, new flat screen TV, iPad mini and petty cash, valued at $1900. The Wells Rd studio had only been open two weeks when the front door was jemmied late on Thursday 4 August. Police are examining CCTV footage from a neighbouring business.

Spinning into trouble A WOMAN lost control as her car spun more than 360 degrees and slammed sideways into a truck at Patterson Lakes, Monday 1 August. The truck was parked on the path leading up to the Thompson Rd bridge and workers were standing at the front ready to work on the steel barriers when the accident occurred, 10am. The truck’s tray made a “significant intrusion” into the body of the car, putting the woman, in her early 30s, in danger, SES incident controller Philip Holt said. SES crews moved the truck forward and used the jaws-of-life to cut her free. She was taken to hospital by ambulance. Police, Patterson River CFA, Ambulance and Frankston SES crews attended the scene, made more dangerous by heavy rain. All in: SES crews use the jaws-of-life to free the female driver from a damaged car on Thompson Rd. Wet weather and bald tyres may have contributed to the accident. Picture: Gary Sissons
