Mildura Weekly : Friday April 22 Vol 10 No 24
Distributed FREE every Friday FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2016 WWW.MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU VOL 10 #24 Rural properties targeted in string of burglaries CRIME SPREE POLICE from two States are in- vestigating a spate of burglaries across rural Sunraysia resulting in hundreds of thousands of dol- lars worth of property being sto- len. Mildura, Swan Hill, Robinvale and New South Wales police say the thefts have occurred over the past few months, with properties in Robinvale, Euston, Swan Hill, Colignan and Tooleybuc the main targets. Items including chemicals, heavy machinery, cars and firearms have been stolen, with police yesterday confirm- ing that they had recovered a significant amount of stolen property this week. However, they also confirmed that this only represents “a small portion of the total haul.” Police have charged a 32-year-old Euston man with theft-related offences. He did not apply for bail and has been remanded to appear in the Mildura Mag- istrates’ Court on May 11. According to Mildura police Inspector John Nolan, investigations into the thefts are ongoing, with further arrests likely. Police are appealing for public as- sistance, particularly from residents in Euston and Robinvale. “It is highly likely that residents of these communities will have been of- fered stolen goods by the offenders, or have some knowledge of crimes and of- fenders involved,” Insp. Nolan said. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mildura police, or Crime Stop- pers on 1800 333 000. Oh what a feeling Anne! Little did school teacher Anne Macdonald know that when she won a $250 shopping voucher as part of the Mildura Weekly’s Car and Cash Giveaway that just a few weeks later she’d be walking away with the competition’s grand prize – a 2016 five-door Toyota Yaris! But that’s just what happened. That’s an elated Anne pictured with Mildura Weekly managing director, Stuart Mensch, left, and Markwell’s Toyota dealer principal, Rod Markwell. See Page 2 for all the details of another successful Mildura Weekly car and cash giveaway, and Anne’s amazing win.
