Three arrests over Rosebud murder THREE more people have been arrested as investigations continue into the death of a 31-year-old Mt Waverley man in Rosebud last year. NSW police arrested a man, 25, and woman, 30, in Smithfield, Monday night 16 April, and Victoria police arrested and charged a 46-yearold Rosebud man on Thursday 19 April. The two men have been charged with murder and the woman with being an accessory to murder. This follows the arrest of a 30-year-old man following a house siege in Ocean Street, Rosebud, Monday 4 September. He was charged with one count of murder and three counts of conduct endangering life and remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in August. The couple arrested in NSW were extradited to Victoria and remanded in custody to appear in court at a later date. The Rosebud man appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Friday, and was also remanded in custody. The shooting allegedly occurred on Eastbourne Road, Sunday 3 September. The victim was found in the passenger seat of a car with a gunshot wound to his head about 8pm. He was taken to hospital but died the next night. Police say they have spoken to several other people who are continuing to assist with inquiries. Their investigation remains ongoing.

Slow rider’s fall A SEAFORD motorbike rider who allegedly sped away from Somerville highway patrol came to an embarrassing halt when his chain came off causing him to roll to a stop. He then fell off. Police said they attempted to intercept the bike in Brunel Road just before 2am, Monday 16 April, when they noticed that blue tape on the number plate. The rider sped off, allegedly reaching 148kph in the 60kph zone, before the chain came off and

A SOMERVILLE highway patrol nightshift crew on “hoon” patrol in Noble Park, Friday 6 April, nabbed a black Mustang (or “Pony” car) and a white Mitsubishi 380 allegedly racing each other at more than 130kph in an 80kph zone. The cars were impounded and towed to the Preston impound yard for a minimum of 30 days, with release fees of around $1000 each. Two 20-year-old men – one from Chelsea Heights and the other from Springvale – are expected to be charged on summons with a variety of offences, including driving at a speed/manner dangerous and participating in a time trial. “If you are tempted to try out your car against a mate or someone who pulls up next to you and starts revving their engine, take the time to think of the possible consequences for you and other road users,” Somerville highway patrol’s Greg Wolfe said. “Our public roads are not a racetrack. Please drive safely.”

Fire destroys camper van AN expensive motor home was destroyed by fire while its owner was fishing off the rocks at Mt Martha, Monday 16 April. Mt Martha CFA crews fought the blaze at about 7pm on the Esplanade near Stanley Crescent but were unable to save the van, which was burnt down to its chassis. CFA captain Brian Smith said a cooker may have caught fire before flames spread throughout the interior. It is believed the owner heard the van’s smoke alarm but, by the time he scrambled back to the car park, the fire had taken hold. Its intensity meant he could not reach inside to grab the fire extinguisher.
