Police patrol Teens arrested after car thefts, burglaries TEENAGE car thieves – some as young as 13 – have been arrested by Frankston detectives after more than 10 cars were broken into in Langwarrin last week and a stolen car was driven at a resident. The teens, riding in a Holden Commodore stolen from outside a Cranbourne house, 1am, Wednesday 11 January, were allegedly involved in a “lengthy high-speed pursuit” with police before escaping and linking up with a stolen Holden utility in Dunsterville Cr, Frankston, soon after. Detective Senior Constable Richard Thomson said one of the cars was then “driven directly at a resident”, aged 40, who had parked his car nearby and had noticed the young car thieves inside. Detective Thomson said up to nine young offenders – most still at large – had been identified in relation to the two stolen cars. He said early on Sunday 15 January, possibly the same young car thieves in a Subaru station wagon stolen from Korumburra, allegedly broke into more than 10 cars to steal small items such as sunglasses, keys, garage remotecontrol door openers and cash, in various Langwarrin streets. Detectives early next day arrested the five teenagers, aged 13-17, in Frankston North who they believe were involved in the Dunsterville Cr incident, various car thefts and the thefts from motor cars. They have been charged with multiple counts of car theft, theft from motor cars, and aggravated burglary and remanded in custody to appear at a children’s court at a later date. Detective Thomson said the investigations were ongoing. He urges residents whose cars have been robbed to call 9784 5555.

Stolen car goes wrong way POLICE say it was “very lucky no one was killed” when a stolen car was driven south on the northbound lanes of Peninsula Link, early Monday 9 January. The Subaru Impreza, stolen in Cranbourne, was spotted being driven erratically in Quarry Rd, Langwarrin, 4.38am. Frankston Highway Patrol units tried to intercept the car but backed off when they considered the chase too dangerous. The car was seen doing several U-turns, including driving north on the freeway’s southbound lanes, at up to 130kph in what police described as heavy traffic. They monitored the car via CCTV cameras as it continued north on the Frankston freeway and exited at the Chelsea off-ramp. The car was found burnt out in Clyde North on Wednesday 11 January. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Crop house raid THE seizure of 190 cannabis plants valued at up to $640,000 from a Frankston Heights property may put a small dent in the supply of illicit drugs in the city. Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Jayson Hamilton-Smith, of Frankston CIU, said the mature hydroponically-grown plants weighing 80kg were found at a Heatherhill Rd “crop house” in the raid, Monday 9 January. A 20-year-old man renting the property was arrested and remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 4 April charged with cultivating a commercial quantity of a drug of dependence. Detective Hamilton-Smith said electricity was being illegally sourced from the grid and was bypassing the property’s meter.
