HOWARD SHOP THIEF APPREHENDED AND STOLEN GOODS RETURNED TO OWNER
After taking artcles from the local IGA store the opportunist thief decided to stop outside the local police station to relieve himself.
He was recognised as the shop thief and promptly apprehended, the goods siezed and returned to the store. Yours truly was at the shop scene when the constabulary arrived to return the stolen goods to the store. Some pics of the lads below in action. So good to see results on theft issues etc. Thanks guys.
BY THE WAY
The items stolen from the store were a bottle of milk and biscuits. …A HUNGRY THIEF…!!!

Jim Gabriel project manager for Sunstate said they would be doing the upgrade over the next 4-6 months
Ron Grieves from the Dept of Main Roads has commented on the need for this upgrade and will get back to his department re the placement of further pipes under the highway for future growth plans for the area and especially the 60 acres or so across the highway where a proposal for a 300 modular home village has been put forward to be used by the ‘Grey Nomads’.
The existing power lines over the highway will be replaced by an underground service as part of the current intersection upgrade
