Rosebud man facing charges over burglaries A MAN arrested over a series of burglaries of businesses and churches across the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston over the past four months has been remanded in custody to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date. The 37-year-old, arrested by Detective Sergeant Adrian Mizza, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, at his Rosebud home last week, is facing 28 charges over 14 alleged burglaries involving more than $60,000. The man appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday on unrelated charges but detectives will apply for the burglary charges to be heard at Frankston Magistrates’ Court. More charges are pending as detectives further investigate his activities. Detectives will allege the man used angle grinders and hammer drills to cut into safes and tills at shops and businesses at McCrae, Rosebud
and Sorrento since October. His victims included travel agents, bakeries, bookshops, stationery outlets, cafes, hairdressers – as well as churches at Frankston South, Mt Eliza and Mt Martha and a private home at Carrum. Detective Sergeant Jason Hocking, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the man had been bailed at Frankston Magistrates’ Court in September over shop burglaries in which petty cash had allegedly been stolen. “I’m sure there will be many local traders breathing a sigh of relief now,” Detective Hocking said. “Most businesses tend not to leave much cash on their premises overnight but, in some cases we investigated, this was not always the case.”

Shire to tackle wastewater woes MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council’s recently adopted Wastewater Management Plan 2018-2023 aims to address the “environmental and public health risks posed by residential and commercial wastewater on the peninsula”. The term wastewater covers liquid waste from toilets, kitchen sinks, showers and basins. The peninsula’s environment is especially affected by wastewater because of the high number of properties serviced by septic tanks. In these cases, householders are responsible for installing and maintaining their own treatment systems. “The shire has the highest number of septic systems of any Victorian council, leaving over 22,000 properties across the peninsula without reticulated
sewerage,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. “Many of these systems were approved decades ago and are discharging bacteria and other contaminants into groundwater and waterways. “Poorly maintained wastewater systems at commercial premises also contribute to contaminating local waterways.” Cr Gill said the Wastewater Management Plan, which received input from environment groups and the wastewater industry, aims to minimise wastewater impacts to the environment, protect public health, foster strategies to manage wastewater, and provide for coordinated wastewater planning and services by council and waste water users.
