FIVE hot-water units were stolen from a building site in Salmon St, Mentone, Friday 1 December. Detectives said the thieves may have used the stormy weather as a cover for their operation. The $3600 units were already fixed to walls of the units but were unbolted and carried off.

With Stephen Taylor

Tools taken

Cash only

Two for the road

BURGLARS who may have been looking only for cash ransacked a house in Genoa Avenue, Bonbeach, mid-morning, Tuesday 28 November. The offenders entered through the backyard and smashed a window to gain entry to the house where they ransacked draws and cupboards. Mobile phones lay untouched but $2000 in foreign currency was taken. Soon afterwards, a house in Cairns Avenue, Bonbeach, was broken into and jewellery stolen, although laptops and mobile phones were left behind. The owners are still assessing what was taken.

PLUMBING and gas-fitting tools valued at $7500 and a De Walt gas nailer valued at $1000 were stolen from a tradie’s locked toolbox, overnight Wednesday 29 November. The toolbox was in a Hi-Lux ute parked outside the victim’s address in Coast Banksia Drive, Bonbeach. The tools were engraved with the name “Smaley”. Anyone offered cheap tools so marked should call Kingston police 9556 6111 and ask to speak to the theft-from-motor-cars police group.

TWO racing bikes valued at $1000 each were stolen from the rear of a property in Coonawarra Avenue, Aspendale, overnight Saturday 2 December. The white Massi and green and black Avanti competition bikes were in the backyard when they were taken.

Bus stop assault

A MALVERN teenager was assaulted by a group of youths at a bus stop in Centreway, Mordialloc, 9pm, Tuesday 28 November. Three males and a female allegedly punched the 16-year-old several times in the face. He did not know them. The group – possibly Asian or Maori and in their mid-to-late teens – then ran off up to Main St. The teen was taken to Sandringham Hospital for treatment to a cut eye. Police are following up CCTV footage of the incident.

Push came to shove

A MAN who walked past the service area of a Dingley warehouse and into the goods area told staff he was there to collect an item. He “became vague” when queried and then became angry, making phone calls and pacing around before leaving. Soon after, the man returned with a woman and began yelling abuse across the showroom and approaching staff in a menacing manner before being told to leave. The man then allegedly pushed a staff member in the chest with both hands. He fell into a woman behind him who was knocked to the ground injuring her hand. The offender is described as 183cm tall, 30s, olive skin, black short hair, beard, tracksuit pans and “looking dishevelled”. The woman is 162cm tall, late 20s, olive skin and casual clothes.
