    TAS Eve Askew investigation 

    Monday, 16 April 2012 – 9:30 am.

    At approximately 12pm Sunday 15 April, Tasmania Police finalised their searches at the Karanga and Uxbridge properties for evidence in relation to the disappearance in 1991 of Eve Askew. The Australian Federal Police surveys, excavations and refurbishment of the properties were completed on time and there was no further requirement to maintain police possession of them.

    The properties have been returned to the possession of their owners.

    These searches are one part of an investigation plan and are not the end state but one of a number of police actions.

    Investigators are appreciative of the publicity of the matter provided by the media over the last five days as this has aided greatly in the gathering of further information from the public, which will advance the investigation.

    Investigators are particularly thankful to those members of the local community who have had the courage to contact the investigative team recently, which has provided quality information, which will be acted upon.

    Search CrimeView For 0418589544

    Police are still seeking information from anyone who may have any knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Eve Askew. There is a direct line to investigators on 0418589544.

    There is a reward of up to $100,000 for relevant information that results in the conviction of an offender in relation to the disappearance.

    Even though today sees the finalisation of this phase in the investigation, investigators continue to follow up lines of enquiry in relation to the disappearance of Eve Askew.

    At the time of being reported missing her family indicated that she was wearing a distinctive tracksuit.

    Investigations at that time included a series of extensive searches being conducted in the vicinity of the family residence and interviewing known friends and associates. No further evidence as to the fate of Eve was discovered and she has not been seen nor heard from by any person since.

    Police conducted further investigations into Eve’s disappearance in 2001, however, those enquiries failed to resolve this matter.

    TAS Investigations into abduction and assault continue 

    Monday, 12 May 2014 – 4:18 pm.

    Investigations are continuing into the abduction and sexual assault of a child at Latrobe last Tuesday.

    ”We have received an overwhelming response from members of the community. Several key pieces of information have been called in and we are following up on these leads,” said Detective Inspector Robert Gunton.

    The Devonport CIB has established a taskforce with xxx dedicated officers to focus on finding the man responsible for assaulting the girl.

    ”Police high visibility and covert patrols are continuing in the Latrobe district. There have been no further reports of any attempt to approach a child in the area.”

    The grey ‘people mover’ vehicle used by the offender had sliding doors on both sides and there was a child booster seat fitted to the middle row of seats.

    The man is described as thin build and about 175cm tall, with a pale complexion and clean shaven. The victim describes the man’s grey hooded windcheater as having a grey check, with some black. The hood covered the man’s hair.

    ”If anyone has suspicions as to the identity of this man, we urge them to contact us. Don’t keep your suspicions to yourself,” said Det. Insp. Gunton.

    Police have reviewed CCTV from the Latrobe Town Centre but the vehicle or anyone fitting the description of the offender has been identified.

    If anyone has information about the vehicle or suspicious about the identity of the offender please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    TAS AFP withdrawal from Hobart Airport 

    Wednesday, 14 May 2014 – 4:46 pm.

    Tasmania Police have been advised that Australian Federal Police will no longer have a presence at the Hobart Airport.

    ”The 27 AFP officers on site will be withdrawn in the coming months. The impact for Tasmania Police is that we will now provide the policing service for the airport site,” said the Commissioner of Police, Darren Hine.

    ”Hobart Airport will be incorporated into our response model, where incidents are prioritised and resources are deployed in a timely manner according to the incident or demand for policing services.

    ”The airport will also be included in routine police patrols. However there will not be a permanent Tasmania Police presence at Hobart Airport,” said Mr Hine.

    ”This is the model in place for the police response to incidents at other Tasmanian airports.

    ”Tasmania Police will also transition to takeover responsibility as first responders to emergency incidents at the airport.

    ”This will require additional upskilling in the emergency management responsibilities under Commonwealth legislation,” said Mr Hine.

    TAS Charges over illegal vehicle hire 

    Tuesday, 8 April 2014 – 12:31 pm.

    Police have charged a twenty one year old Devonport man in relation to illegally hiring out a private vehicle, a practice known as ‘Des-ing for dollars’.

    It’s alleged the man used his vehicle as an unlicensed taxi when offering to drive people home in the Devonport area in the early hours of Sunday 6 April. The man was issued with an infringement notice relating to a charge under the Taxi and Hire Vehicle Industries Act 2008.

    Police are continuing to monitor the practice of ‘Des-ing for dollars’, or acting as a designated driver for payment, as part of their duties associated with the policing of licensed venues and public events along the Northwest Coast.

    ”Nominating a designated driver amongst your friends is a safe option to plan how to get home after a night out. Police fully support designated drivers as a valuable way to reduce the incidents of drink driving within the community,” said Sergeant Craig Harvey.

    ”There is no concern about friends making a financial contribution to their designated driver to cover the cost of their ride home.”

    Acting as a designated driver with friends should not be confused with the practice of ‘Des-ing for dollars’. ‘Des-ing for dollars’ is the illegal practice of offering a private vehicle for hire without appropriate public vehicle licenses.

    ”This practice leads to concerns regarding safety issues for both passengers and drivers of vehicles that may be ‘Des-ing for dollars’, as well as issues regarding insurance and any subsequent injury to persons or property.”

    TAS Firearms seizure at Devonport 

    Tuesday, 18 March 2014 – 11:07 am.

    Officers from Western Drug Investigation Services have seized a number of firearms and illegal weapons after a search at an address in central Devonport.

    · .22 calibre Magnum Pistol

    · .22 Calibre Bolt Action Rifle

    · SKS Semi Automatic Assault Rifle

    · 12 gauge under and over Shotgun

    A 30 year old man from Devonport has been charged with numerous firearm and drug related offences and bailed to appear at the Devonport Magistrates Court on 29 April 2014.

    It is alleged that no occupants of the residence hold a firearm licence, and that none of the firearms have ever been registered. Ammunition for each of the weapons was also seized and the firearms were not stored in accordance with legislation.

    This seizure is a timely reminder about the Tasmania Police mobile firearms amnesty at Devonport and Burnie this weekend.
