Police patrol Tradies take care
THEFTS from tradies is a “constant issue”, according to Detective Senior Sergeant Shane Cashman, of Kingston CIU. He was speaking after a thief stole $5400 in tools from an Aspendale plumber, 5.30am, Sunday 10 September. The tradie’s Hilux utility was parked in the driveway of his Inlet St property when the thief jemmied open a locked tool box and stole cramping and roofing tools and Makita drills. Detective Cashman urges tradies to engrave their IDs or licence numbers onto tools to make on-selling more difficult.
A MORDIALLOC man who lost his Louis Volutin wallet in Nepean Highway, Mordialloc, discovered later that his credit card had been used in four fraudulent transactions, Wednesday 23 August. These included purchases at an Edithvale service station as well as products online.
A GOOD neighbour who photographed two men breaking into an adjoining house was later confronted and intimidated into handing over his phone, 3.25pm, Friday 8 September. The witness, 46, saw three offenders in Hyland St, Mordialloc, in a blue Holden Astra hatch with no number plates. He watched as two jumped a neighbour’s fence and removed flywire screens and then attempted to smash a window without success. The neighbour got his dog and, going outside, took pictures of the men as they scaled the fence and were picked up by the driver in the Astra. Seeing this, the front seat passenger leaned out and threatened the man, demanding he hand over his phone.
A second man got out and attempted to grab the phone, but the man threw it over a fence. The first offender climbed over and found the phone and then demanded the PIN from the witness before they drove off. Police are seeking witnesses to the incident. Call 9556 6111.
Assault ruins night out
A PLEASANT evening listening to the band at a Mordialloc hotel turned nasty for a man who was attacked from behind while standing at the urinal, 11.45pm, Friday 8 September. The man told police he heard someone behind him and half turned before being punched repeatedly until he almost blacked out. When his attacker left the man managed to make his way downstairs where he reported the incident to security staff. He described his attacker – whom he had seen earlier in a downstairs bar with six others – as Caucasian, aged in his 30s, 183cm, 90100kg, bald head and medium-to-fit build. One of the other men also had a bald head. The victim was unaware of any reason for the attack.
Call the cops
A MAN who stole five packs of bourbon from a Carrum Downs liquor outlet told the attendant to “call the police” when she challenged him and then allegedly attempted to shoot a Taser weapon at her. The weapon did not fire in the 2.30am, Monday 4 September robbery. Anyone with information is urged to call Frankston Embona Taskforce 9784 5555.
