Posted on 27/02/2020

During January we saw people share what they know about a range of unsolved crimes, including a robbery of a Camden Park service station by a woman armed with a knife who threatened the console operator and stole cash.

We also received 56 contacts about firearms and 159 contacts about drug dealing, growing and manufacturing activity. Information provided by the community led to the closure of 1 clandestine drug lab, seizure of 2gm of methamphetamine, 138 cannabis plants and 3.2kg of dried cannabis, and 2 firearms taken out of the hands of criminals.

A total of 17 men and 7 women were charged with an array of serious offences.

Our unsolved weekly crime segments asked for your help to solve a robbery by a masked man with a knife at the Bartley Tavern at West Lakes Shore, an assault and disorderly behaviour by a woman on a bus at Stepney.
