    TAS Charge over burn off fire 

    Wednesday, 10 December 2014 – 11:57 am.

    On 15 November 2014, members from the Tasmania Fire Service responded to a large fire in the Campania area.

    The fire was the result of a landowner conducting burn offs. It will be alleged the landowner failed to take all reasonable precautions prior to the commencement of his burns which resulted in the fire spreading to neighbouring properties.

    The TFS utilised significant resources in order to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading any further. An ongoing watch is being maintained in the area to monitor remaining hot spots.

    As a result of joint investigations, Tasmania Police will charge by summons, a 62 year old man from Campania with an offence under the Fire Service Act 1979 for failing to take reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of fire.

    With the upcoming fire season, it’s a timely reminder for people to be aware of their requirements and responsibilities regarding fires. Anyone seeking further information should visit http://www.fire.tas.gov.au

    In relation to deliberately lit fires; Police encourage people to contact them on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 regarding any information in relation to deliberately lit fires.

    TAS Theft of thebaine poppies 

    Thursday, 11 December 2014 – 4:20 pm.

    A number of thebaine poppies have been stolen from a poppy farm near New Norfolk in the State’s south.

    The theft, which occurred between December 2 and December 10, is being investigated by detectives from the Drug Squad with the support of the Poppy Advisory and Control Board and field officers.

    Detective Acting Inspector Craig Joel said:

    ”A significant amount of the State’s poppies are high in thebaine but low in other opiates.

    ”Thebaine is a toxic substance and the death of a young man earlier this year at Oatlands and another in 2012 at Lewisham show how tragic the consequences can be if poppies are misused.

    ”Trespassing on poppy fields and the possession of poppies and poppy products is illegal with substantial penalties for offenders.

    ”There is no difference in appearance between thebaine and morphine poppies, and while the theft of poppies from poppy farms is traditionally sporadic, there is still a need to raise awareness of misusing the poppies.”

    Anyone who might have information about the theft, or who is offered poppies or poppy products, is asked to contact Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.

    TAS Dangerous Driving Incident 

    Thursday, 4 December 2014 – 8:05 am.

    Police are seeking witnesses in relation to a dangerous driving incident in the North and North West of the State on 3/12/14

    Police are currently investigating serious driving offences that occurred throughout the day of 3 December 2014 in the North and North West of the state.

    The male driver of a white Holden Commodore station wagon committed a petrol stealing in Wynyard earlier in the day. Several hours later he was reported to police acting in a bizarre manner at a Sassafras service station.

    Later that afternoon there were reports of the vehicle driving dangerously at various locations around Launceston. At 3pm police saw the vehicle driving in a dangerous manner in the Norwood area. An attempt to intercept the vehicle was unsuccessful and police did not pursue.

    Shortly after, the vehicle was reported in Kings Meadows, driving in excess of speed limits, and weaving in and out of traffic. It is believed that it also nearly caused a head-on collision with a small red car which was forced to take evasive action.

    To ensure community safety together with the need to stop the male, police employed a strategy utilizing road spikes and unmarked vehicles.

    The vehicle continued to drive in a dangerous manner and shortly thereafter collided with a car in Invermay. The four occupants of that car were not injured.

    Minutes later the vehicle was ‘spiked’ in Holbrook Street. It came to a stop on Mayne Street where the driver decamped.

    Search CrimeView For 67773945

    Police cordoned off the area and searched yards until the driver was located. He was found at 4:20pm and was taken into custody.

    Police would like to hear from any member of the public who witnessed this vehicle driving in a dangerous manner. Messages can be left for investigators by contacting Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Launceston Police on 67773945.

    On 2 December 2014 Northern Drug Investigation Services arrested a 38 year old South Launceston man in relation to significant methylamphetamine trafficking operation in Launceston.

    The three month investigation under the name ‘Operation Courier’ resulted in the seizure of over 650 grams of the drug commonly known as ICE, plus further quantities of morphine and prescription drugs.

The property includes jewellery, paintings, toys, electrical items, power tools and cleaning equipment valued at around $200,000.

    The investigators will allege the accused was importing the ICE from the mainland and distributing it in Tasmania. In a seizure in late October at the Launceston Airport police seized over 560 grams from alleged associates of the accused. Charges have already been laid in relation to this incident and investigations are continuing.

    It will be alleged the total value of the drugs seized from the 38 year old man, and his alleged associates, amounted to more than $570,000.

    The accused will appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court today. He has been charged with trafficking offences, firearms offences and possession of stolen property.

    TAS Historic missing person case 

    Friday, 28 November 2014 – 4:30 pm.

    Tasmania Police is actively investigating new information in relation to the disappearance of a man from the Tasman Peninsula 31 years ago.

    Police have been joined by Mr Mattathyahu’s family members in appealing for more information ahead of a Coronial Inquest to be held in two weeks’ time (15 and 16 December).

    Judah Zachariah Rueben Wolfe Mattathyahu (Born 27 July 1934) was last seen alive on 12 November 1983, at a property at Black Jack Road, Slopen Main, on the Tasman Peninsula. At that time, Mr Mattathyahu lived alone in a hut on a farming property.

    On Friday 11 November 1983, Mr Mattathyahu made arrangements with friends to be transported from Slopen Main to Huonville on Saturday 12 November 1983. At 9.30pm on the Saturday evening a friend arrived at Slopen Main to collect him, but there was no sign of Mr Mattathyahu.

    Mr Mattathyahu has not been seen since. He has not accessed bank accounts nor contacted friends or family.

    Although it was considered unusual that Mr Mattathyahu was not at Slopen Main at the arranged pick-up time, it was not, given his lifestyle, initially suspected by his associates that his disappearance was unusual.

    Given his nomadic lifestyle and the fact he had no family residing in Australia; it wasn’t until 4 March 1984 that Mr Mattathyahu was reported missing by friends. His disappearance was investigated as a Missing Person investigation.

    Investigations at that time included a series of extensive searches in the vicinity of his residence and interviewing known friends and associates. No further evidence as to the fate of Mr Mattathyahu was discovered.

    Recently, Police investigations have uncovered new information about the case that is central to the investigation.

    ”We can’t release details about the information, however it does relate to a person of interest in the disappearance of Mr Mattathyahu,” said Detective Senior Sergeant Richardson.

    ”There has been a wall of silence surrounding this case. Someone knows something, and the family members or friends of that person may have suspicions or information. We are appealing to those people to contact us.”

    Police have also identified relatives, including his ex-wife in the U.K. and half-brothers in Australia, who want to know what happened to Mr Mattathyahu. Mr Mattathyahu’s mother recently died in the U.K. aged 93.

    ”Every day for the past 31 years, Elsie waited for her son to make contact, but she died this year never knowing what happened to him,” said Mr Mattathyahu’s ex-wife, Liz Glenday.

    On behalf of the family, one of Mr Mattathyahu’s half-brothers said:

    ”In our endeavours to find our half-brother Tony Harris, (Judah Zachariah Rueben Wolfe Mattathyahu) who we last saw in 1961, our family have spent many hours sieving through a world of information pursuing his last known travels or whereabouts only to end up in Tasmania following a man who had changed his name several times and also his faith. It seems we have now come very close to the answer and although he was last seen alive in 1983, we as a family would love to have some sort of final closure that would help us piece together the last chapter of his life. We therefore ask that the public come forward if they have any information on Tony that could help the police and draw this long time search to its rightful conclusion.”

    A Coronial Inquest will be held in Hobart into the circumstances of the disappearance of Mr Mattathyahu on 15 and 16 December 2014.

    Police seek information via Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 from anyone who may have any knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Mr Mattathyahu.

    Background to Mr Mattathyahu

    Mr Mattathyahu, who was aged 49 at the time he went missing, was born in the United Kingdom. His birth name was Tony Zachary Harris and may have been known by this name or similar when living in Tasmania. He arrived in Australia in 1973.

    Mr Mattathyahu lived a fairly nomadic life style, and regularly travelled to various parts of Australia where he would live and work on a casual basis. He predominantly kept to himself and usually lived alone.

    He did not appear to have regular work or an occupation, but rather he would seek employment as required to maintain the income to lead a relatively simple lifestyle.

    In the time leading up to his disappearance his employment was described as a ‘bushman’ in the forestry industry. Between 1976 and 1977 Mr Mattathyahu worked in logging operations on the Tasman Peninsula and Huon Valley areas. At the conclusion of this employment he worked for another forestry contractor in the Maydena area.

    Around 1981, Mr Mattathyahu was employed in the Table Mountain (Central Highlands) area. Between April and June 1982 Mr Mattathyahu was working for a forestry contractor on a property at Slopen Main on the Tasman Peninsula.

    Mr Mattathyahu didn’t own a car nor did he have an Australian drivers licence. He appears to have been entirely reliant upon friends and associates for his travel requirements.

    In addition to his birth name, Tony Zachary Harris, Mr Mattathyahu was known by a number of variations to the spelling of his surname, also by the surname MATTAHIAS, and by the Christian names, Judah, Karl, Ruben and Zac. He may also have been known to some persons as Karl or Ruben WOLFE.
