Shock find in Wakool

By Olivia Duffey

A number of ‘‘prohibited and unlawful items’’ have been seized from a Wakool property, but as yet no charges have been laid.

Police were unable to reveal all details regarding Wednesday’s operation before the Pastoral Times went to print on Thursday.

Senior Constable Peter Joice said he could only confirm the items seized from the property included a small cannabis plant, a firearm and ammunition, flick knives, a set of handcuffs, slingshots and dog shock collars.

The Pastoral Times believes police utilised its rescue and dog units  and were joined by Murray River Council and RSPCA officers to conduct the operation.

It is understood a 52 year-old man is helping police with their inquiries.

Intimidation charge

A 32 year-old Deniliquin man has been charged with intimidation and issued with an AVO after allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend.

The man is reported to have gone to her home on Sunday and refused to leave.

He was arrested on Wednesday, and is expected to appear in Deniliquin court next month.

Break-in caught on camera

Police say they have CCTV footage of a man breaking into a local service station on Monday, just before midnight.

Police said a male is seen kicking a glass door and then gaining access to the shop.

Staff discovered the damage the next morning.

Police inquiries are continuing.

Car damaged

A man entered the supermarket about 11.20am Tuesday and was reportedly seen putting items in a reusable bag and leaving without paying.

Tools taken

Assorted tools, drills, grinders, battery packs and chargers, vacuums, sockets and saws have been reported missing from a number of company utes parked in the south Deniliquin industrial estate.
