Police Make an Arrest over Lane Cove North Break Ins

    As you are probably aware there has been a spate of break ins around the Lane Cove Council Area. Police have charged a 40 year old Wahroonga man and 25 year old woman from Glebe with a string of offences after they were stopped exiting a property in Lane Cove North

    Around 4:00am Wednesday 10th July police were alerted to suspicious behaviour occurring at a unit block on Pacific Highway, Lane Cove North. Police will allege that a Wahroonga man and his female accomplice broke into underground storage units at properties on the Pacific Highway as well as Helen Street in Lane Cove North.

    Upon arriving at the Helen Street address police observed the male exiting the property, with the Glebe woman stopped in the immediate vicinity. The male was searched and police will allege that he was found to be in possession of pills believed to be a prohibited drug. Police will further allege a search of the vehicle being used by the pair uncovered more than 20 items of jewellery confirmed to be stolen during a break and enter that occurred in June. Also located during the search of the vehicle, police will allege, was 1.5 kilograms of gun powder.

    The pair were arrested and taken to Chatswood Police Station where they were both charged with possessing stolen property, break and enter and explosives offences in addition the male was charged with possessing a prohibited drug. They have been granted strict conditional bail and will face Hornsby Local Court later this month.

    This does not appear to be the same man who has been caught on CCTV in Riverview.  This person acts alone and appears to be in his mid 20’s.

    Some residents will be happy to be reunited with their stolen jewellery.
