A 26-YEAR-OLD woman who was captured by police while driving a stolen car on the Monash Freeway, Monday 8 January, may be charged with stealing expensive jewellery from Southland. Detectives will allege the woman visited a high-end jeweller on Boxing Day and asked to see two rings valued at $20,000. When a staff member’s attention was diverted she allegedly “did a runner” with the rings. Although detectives knew her identity the woman was not seen again until a pursuit in which a Pakenham woman’s Suzuki Swift was driven across road spikes and crashed into three police cars with its tyres shredded. She is also expected to be charged with aggravated burglary, theft of a motor vehicle and conduct endangering serious injury.

Lock before you leave POLICE are appealing for residents to lock their cars and secure their valuables, especially while at home, at the beach or shopping. Detective Sergeant Michael Coughlin, of Moorabbin CIU, said laptops, phones, wallets containing cash and credit cards and other valuables were common targets for thieves who preyed upon the careless and the unwary. “Even if your car is parked in the driveway it should still be locked and valuables removed – especially overnight,” Detective Coughlin said.
