Police patrol FOUR males aged 17-20 pointed what looked like a handgun at two 13-year-old boys walking along Railway Parade, Highett, before stealing their computers, 5pm, Saturday 25 November. The men, described as Caucasian and driving a stolen 1999 Nissan Maxima sedan, approached the boys as they walked south towards the station. The driver pointed the black weapon directly at the boys and demanded they hand over their Apple iPads and iPhones. The driver and a second man then got out and again demanded the boys hand over the items. One boy did so while the second said he did not have anything on him. The offenders took the two items and sped off towards Highett shopping centre. Five minutes later a 40-year-old Highett man was crossing Tweed St when the same silver sedan speeding north nearly ran him over. When he gesticulated the car stopped and one of the men pointed what looked like a handgun at him before speeding off. On Monday 27 November the silver car, registration JURMLA, was recovered in Warrigal Rd, Moorabbin. An imitation firearm matching the description provided by the pedestrian and the boys was found inside. Police are calling for witnesses to the incidents, or anyone who may have seen the car, to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or Detective Senior Constable Phillip Wilkinson, of Kingston CIU, 9556 6111.
Sports club robbed BURGLARS forced their way into the Carrum-Patterson Lakes Sports Club and stole petty cash, 2.50am, Sunday 26 November. They climbed over the balcony of the Graham Rd building and removed CCTV cameras before forcing a window.
The offenders jemmied a latch into the bar area before searching cupboards and stealing petty cash and running off across nearby ovals.
Stolen car in robbery attempt

The cars were at the Nepean Highway house at 2am but reportedly taken by 9am. C CTV footage at a factory in Teton Court, Highett, later in the morning shows a man standing behind the 2016 Subaru.
