Despite a few crimes rearing their heads in the Narromine Shire, local police sergeant Darren Wilkins is happy with the overall reduction in crime rates.
One of those crimes that occured was a break, enter and steal offence at Cale Oval in Narromine.
“A small amount of alcohol was stolen from a locked refrigerator at Cale Oval between August 3 and 4,” Sergeant Wilkins said.
“On a positive note, this is the only break, enter and steal offence reported over the past four weeks.
“In the same period last year we saw a total of six break and enter offences. That’s a reduction of just over 80 per cent. Well done Narromine, keep the eyes peeled and information coming.”
In other police news, at about 1pm on Wednesday August 8, Sergeant Wilkins said police attended a Dappo Road address in relation to a domestic violence intimidation incident.
“After a number of inquires a 30-year-old male handed himself into police about 6.20pm,” Sergeant Wilkins said.
“He was charged with intimidation with intention to cause fear of physical harm and later released on conditional bail to appear at Narromine Local Court next month.
“Domestic violence is one of the most under-reported categories of crimes. The NSW Police Force will respond to and investigate all reports of domestic and family violence and pursue the perpetrators to hold them accountable for their ‘criminal behaviour’ by placing them before the courts.”
At about 1.40pm also on Wednesday August 8, Sergeant Wilkins said a 16-year-old Narromine youth was arrested at the rear of a Murgah Street address by virtue of a court issued warrant.
“The youth failed to appear at Narromine Local Court on July 13 2012 in relation to a charge of take and drive conveyance,” Sergeant Wilkins said.
“Police had attended the address in search for another male wanted for an intimidation offence. Upon police arrival at the address the youth was seen to run to the Southern side yard of the premises.
“Police gave chase and the youth doubled back to the opposite side of the house only to find another officer in the waiting. He was bail refused to appear at Dubbo Children’s Court.”
