September program results released

Posted on 28/10/2019

A total of eighteen men and two women were apprehended for a range of serious offences during September thanks to the information you provided to Crime Stoppers.

In addition to more than 160 drug-related contacts and 55 contacts about illegal firearms, we also received information about the bashing murder of Shaun Russell at Hackham West and the shooting murder of Jason De Ieso at his Pooraka workshop in 2012. We also had people share what they know about an indecent assault at Seaford Meadows, a hit-run crash at Greenwith, as well as serious criminal trespass incidents at the Supreme Court in the city and at a Croydon café.

The apprehensions made during the month saw police lay a variety of charges for trafficking a controlled drug, money laundering, and firearm and weapon offences.

Our unsolved weekly crime segments asked for your help in response to a series of violent incidents involving outlaw motorcycle gangs, the robbery of a taxi driver by three men at Brompton, an armed hold up of a Para Hills service station and three men caught on CCTV breaking into the Lion Arts Centre in the city.
