Call for Information Flare Sighting Galiwinku

Northern Territory Police on Tuesday, 13/12/2016 19:03 AEST

Northern Territory Police are calling for information in relation to the sighting of four red flares north of Howard Island to the west of Galiwinku on Monday night.

Duty Superintendent Rob Burgoyne said the description of the flare sighting was consistent with marine distress parachute flares. A yellow flash – which could be attributed to atmospherics – was also seen in the same direction about 40 minutes later.

“Enquiries in neighbouring areas have not found any parties to be overdue, and vessels and aircraft in the area have searched without success.

“There was also no beacon activation or mayday call.

“There was severe weather in the area, so it is also possible a vessel set-off the flares, before being able to recover in the mild conditions after the storm.”

Police drop by hospital to deliver smiles

Queensland Police Service on Tuesday, 13/12/2016 17:42 AEST

Santa and his elves literally dropped into the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital this morning, delighting the children – and most of the staff – as they abseiled down eight stories.

Stefan’s MASKS (Making Sick Kids Smile) Foundation Christmas Gift Drive started the

day with breakfast at the Queen Street Mall. A procession of police horses, cars and approximately 40 motorcycles from the Road Policing Command then made their way to the hospital to tour the wards and deliver presents to the kids.

Children were entertained between face-painting, patting the police puppies and standing at a cautious distance to the police horses; all until Santa’s big entrance.

Santa and three trusted elves descended from the top storey, waving to the delighted kids through the windows of each floor. They were greeted on the ground by officers carrying sacks full of donated toys.

The MASKS event has become an exciting tradition for both the Queensland Police Service and the children, with the event occurring at Easter and Christmas for the past 18 years.

Chocolates and toys donated by the MASKS Foundation, with the assistance of the Children’s Hospital Foundation, were gifted to children throughout the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, which is the largest specialist children’s hospital in Queensland.

Commissioner Ian Stewart stated that it was a privilege to bring a variety of Queensland Police Service personnel together to give hospitalised children a joyful reprieve in a potentially stressful and disheartening time of year.

“We hope this event is a worthy distraction for the sick and injured children and brings smiles to their faces,” Commissioner Stewart said.

“The bravery and determination of these kids is outstanding. Delivering presents is a small gesture to show that the community is behind them.”

Unlawful use of a motor vehicle, burglary – Wurtulla

Queensland Police Service on Tuesday, 13/12/2016 12:10 AEST

Sunshine Coast Detectives are investigating after a vehicle was stolen from a residence in Wurtulla last Friday and was involved in a series of offences.

At around 9am a man entered the driveway of a Baroona Street property and drove away with a car which had its keys left in the ignition.

Between 12.30am and 1am on December 11, the same man entered a residence on Richardson Street at Pacific Paradise and removed a laptop before leaving via the back door.

The man then left the scene in the stolen vehicle from Wurtulla which is described as a blue Ford XR6 with license plate number BJW54.

A short time later, the man entered an unlocked dwelling on Richardson Street, Pacific Paradise and stole a wallet containing cash and credit cards which were later used at a service station in Maroochydore.

Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards said police give the message time and time again yet it still doesn’t seem to sink in until members of the community become a victim of crime.

“Lock your home, remove valuables from your car, lock your car and keep your car keys out of sight,” Senior Sergeant Edwards said.

“Police are consistently arresting car thieves and locating stolen vehicles but we need the help of the public to ensure that these crimes don’t happen in the first place.”

You can greatly reduce the risk of becoming a victim of a burglary by implementing measures to improve the security of your home and vehicle such as:

• Secure your home and vehicles even when you’re home. Many burglars simply enter through an unlocked door or window. Remove keys from internal doors and windows when you are not at home.

• Get to know your neighbours. Exchange telephone numbers and keep and eye on each other’s homes. Observant neighbours can reduce prowling, loitering and burglary by reporting suspicious people or vehicles to police.

• Keep cash, keys and valuables out of sight and out of easy reach.

• Give your home the “lived in” look when you’re out by leaving a light on and the radio playing. Timing devices are effective for this.

For more tips please visit home security on the Queensland Police website

“Consider for a moment how the theft of your vehicle will impact you, then take just a few short minutes to ensure that your vehicle, home and car keys are secure,” Senior Sergeant Edwards said.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and community volunteer organisation working in partnership with the Queensland Police Service.
