Strike Force Trident have recovered suspected stolen items valued at around $6,000 following the execution of a search warrant at a residence in Driver.
Around 9:00am on 14 August, an unknown offender stole a toolbox containing items valued at several thousand dollars from an address in Gray. The offender returned to the same location around 2:45pm in an attempt to steal another toolbox prior to being disturbed by the victim and fleeing the scene. Neighbouring CCTV footage captured the suspect.
Strike Force Trident officers attended a Driver residence and identified the stolen toolbox which had been painted to change its appearance. As a result, a search warrant was executed and the toolbox was recovered along with other power tools, hand tools, cable laying kits and electrical items. If you believe any of these items are yours, please contact police.
Police investigations have identified a number of suspects and arrests are expected to be made in the near future.
