Wrap of local police callouts.November 23, 2012 4:16am
A Pyalong man has been charged with theft of a motor car, evading police and numerous traffic offences following a short pursuit along the Hume Fwy, Tooborac Rd and Seymour-Pyalong Rd on Monday.
Police were initially alerted to an alleged stolen car taken from an Avenel Rd address about 5.30
The car was then lost sight of in Speed Rd, when it went through bushland, but police later arrested the alleged driver, aged 47, as he was walking along the Seymour-Tooborac Rd. He will appear in court in January.
Police attended a two-car collision on Goulburn Valley Hwy, near Telegraph Rd, Seymour on Saturday morning which could unfortunately have been avoided.
A woman parked on the side of the road, talking on her mobile phone, was sideswiped by a passing car. Even though it is not illegal to talk on the phone while your car is parked, it is not an entirely safe practice if it is done on a busy road, with no wide verges to park on and no clear visibility for oncoming cars due to hills and corners.
Oncoming cars should take heed of vehicles parked on the roadside and slow down when passing. The driver of the parked car was not injured, but her car had to be towed away and the front seat passenger in the other car received serious injuries to his arm and was taken by ambulance to the Northern hospital.
Seymour detectives believe they have stopped a nationwide crime spree after the arrest of a Broadmeadows man on November 7.
It is alleged the man had previously been to the Target store in Seymour in October when using a stolen or skimmed credit card he made purchases totalling several thousand dollars. He again went to the store on November 7, but staff alerted police who shortly afterwards spoke with him in the street.
The 33-year-old has since been charged with 17 deception offences totalling more than $44
Police hope a Nagambie man has finally got the road safety message after he was checked at a random breath testing station at the weighbridge near Coolabah on November 9, giving an evidentiary breath test result of 0.068 per cent. The man, in his mid 60s, had his licence immediately suspended due to a previous drink driving charge in May 2011, where he had been breath tested at the same location, giving a similar reading. He will be appearing in court at a later date.
A 15-year-old girl received a caution after failing to pay for petrol at the Avenel roadhouse on November 10. She was the passenger in the vehicle and after putting $80 worth of fuel in the car, she just got back in and was driven away. Police were alerted straight away and the car was later intercepted by a Benalla patrol car.
A local man in his late 20s had his car impounded for 30 days after he was caught driving erratically in Pollard St about 1.50
Police had earlier received reports of the car allegedly hooning around the Smith St and Kitchener Cr areas, with the car having no bonnet, no front bumper and no registration plates. Police were patrolling the area looking for the vehicle when they saw it fishtailing along Pollard St. The driver will also be facing court on numerous charges including improper use of a car, undue noise, unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered car.
