A Koonoomoo resident has foiled an attempted theft.
A man reversed his white BA Ford Falcon ute up to a box trailer parked in a front yard on the Goulburn Valley Hwy about 9.15am last Wednesday and was about to attach the trailer when he was disturbed by the resident.
The man was in his mid-30s and about 168cm tall, with sandy blond hair, thick set build and a ruddy complexion. He was wearing a white t-shirt with a square pattern on the front and faded blue denim jeans.
Coins and jewellery were stolen from a home on the Murray Valley Hwy at Cobram East on Friday.
Antique gates were stolen from properties on Johnston Rd, Burramine, and Powerline Rd, Yarrawonga, between Monday and Wednesday last week.
A white/silver four-wheel drive tray ute was seen in the area.
●Police and CFA were called to a grass fire on Hogans Rd last Wednesday.
The fire was caused by a spark from an angle grinder and was quickly extinguished.
If your mail is stolen, thieves can create a false identity in your name.
Your mail includes items about your identity such as driver’s licence, utility accounts, credit card transactions and bank statements.
People can steal these to assume your identity and then defraud others using your name. This can have devastating consequences for you and your reputation.
●Police are investigating a series of power tool thefts from tradesmen’s vehicles and trailers.
Offenders are targeting tradesmen’s vehicles during the night and stealing expensive power tools.
To avoid becoming a victim, ensure that your vehicle or trailer is locked and secured when left unattended. It is also important that all power tools are engraved with your licence number so they can be recovered by police and returned if stolen.
●Anyone with information in relation to any offence can contact their local police, phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
