    TAS 12 year old child detected driving at 122kmh 

    Monday, 14 December 2015 – 9:42 am.

    A 12 year old girl has been detected driving at 122kmh on Illawarra Main Road in the State’s north.

    On Saturday night at 10.37pm, police detected a speeding vehicle travelling at 122km/h on Illawarra Road.
    The vehicle was intercepted on Youl Road, Perth, and police were shocked to discover the driver was a 12 year old girl.

    A 21 year old man and a 16 year old girl were passengers in the vehicle.

    The girl was charged and bailed for false name and driving offences.

    Sgt Phil Summers, of Deloraine Police, said that more than half of all fatalities occur on country roads.

    ”This is a terrible example of a flagrant disregard for safety not only of the driver, but all other road users. This incident could very well have ended in tragedy,” Sgt Summers said.

    ”This is a timely reminder to the public on the dangers of speed over the Christmas period and the manner in which instances such as this will be treated by Tasmania Police who will be out in force over the festive period.”

    TAS Police Vehicle rammed by stolen car 

    Monday, 7 December 2015 – 11:28 am.

    About 2.35am on Sunday 6 December 2015 a Toyota Hilux was reported stolen from an address in Ravenswood. Within 25 minutes of the vehicle being reported stolen, responding police located the vehicle travelling east on the Tasman Highway at Waverley.

    Police attempted to intercept the vehicle but it failed to stop for them and continued travelling away from Launceston. Police followed the vehicle, out past Myrtle Park and onto a narrow track.

    As the track narrowed, the Hilux suddenly reversed at speed towards the police vehicle, ramming it twice, and allowing the offender the opportunity to escape into the bush.

    The police vehicle was extensively damaged and will be off the road while repairs are undertaken.

    It has been the second ramming of a police vehicle in less than two weeks.

    Importantly no police officers were injured during the incident.

    ”Policing is by its very nature, a high risk occupation, but actions like this increase that risk level substantially,” said Inspector Michael Johnston.

    Anyone with any information as to the identity and location of the offender should call Tasmania Police on 131444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

    TAS Vehicle Fire at Drake Street Devonport 

    Sunday, 22 November 2015 – 6:10 pm.

    About 1.10am on Sunday 22nd of November 2015, Police were contacted by the Tasmania Fire Service in relation to a vehicle fire on Drake Street, Devonport.

    The vehicle was deliberately set on fire and a loud explosion occurred prior to it being extinguished. The vehicle did not contain explosives; rather, evidence suggests the loud explosion was the result of the windows being forced out due to the rapid expansion of air within the confined space of the vehicle when on fire.

    The vehicle was destroyed by the fire and a nearby residence was damaged by flying debris from the explosion. No one was injured.

    Police would like to speak to anyone who has information in relation to the fire; or specifically, observed a grey or silver SUV parked facing East on the Bass Highway about 1.15am this morning; or observed anything suspicious in the area of the intersection of Drake and Elizabeth Streets, Devonport.

    Any person with information is urged to contact Devonport CIB or Crime stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the police assistance line on 131444.

    Monday, 23 November 2015 – 11:56 am.

    A 34 year old man from Irishtown was arrested on Mawbanna Road, just south of the Bass Highway yesterday following a police operation.

    Graham John Enniss was wanted by Police in relation to a spate of property related crime in the Circular Head area and the theft of firearms from the Black River area.

    The vehicle was disabled when its tyres were punctured, and the driver was arrested without further incident.

    Commander Lauchland Avery said:

    ”Police would like to thank the residents of Circular Head who provided assistance to responding police.

    ”Mr Enniss is currently in police custody and officers will progress with interviews and charges, when he is able to be interviewed.

    ”The community may have observed police in the area over recent days and we thank them for the assistance and information they have provided to officers, to date.”

    TAS Preparations for OMCG Black Uhlans National Run 

    Wednesday, 21 October 2015 – 2:14 pm.

    Tasmania Police will be monitoring the activities of members of the Black Uhlans Outlaw Motorcycle Gang as they undertake their annual ‘National Run’ in Tasmania over the coming days (23 – 26 October 2015).

    Approximately 115 Black Uhlans members will spend time in the Smithton and Devonport areas over a three day period.

    ”These communities can be assured there will be a strong police presence actively monitoring the activities of the Black Uhlans while they are in our state,” said Western District Acting Commander Tim Dooley.

    Tasmania Police has been aware of the Black Uhlans’ plans for several months and have developed a comprehensive response plan.

    ”We have planned a coordinated, highly visible presence in the Smithton and Devonport area for the duration of the OMCG visit,” said Acting Inspector Dooley.

    The Black Uhlans have a small membership in Tasmania, with clubhouses at Smithton and Quoiba. In other states, the Black Uhlans are considered a violent organised crime gang, and they will be under very close police scrutiny while in our state.

    As is the case in other jurisdictions during OMCG National Runs, other states will send OMCG specialist officers to Tasmania to assist with information gathering on members.

    While we won’t be outlining our plans in relation to the Black Uhlans National Run, the OMCG members are on notice in our jurisdiction.

    TAS Devonport man charged with escape 

    Wednesday, 14 October 2015 – 3:05 pm.

    A 30-year-old man who tried to escape court custody was recaptured within minutes by a Devonport police officer with the assistance of members of the public yesterday.

    He has been charged with Escape and has been remanded in custody to reappear on 4 November, 2015.

    The man, who was appearing on breach of suspended sentence fled out the front entrance of the Devonport Magistrate’s Court at about 4.40pm.

    A police constable attempted to stop him and gave chase down Oldaker St. The offender got into a white car on Formby Rd between Oldaker and Best streets.

    The white car was occupied by a man and a woman.

    Two members of the public, a husband and wife, saw the foot chase and offered assistance to the police officer. They manoeuvred their car to block the path of the white car.

    The officer had called for urgent police assistance and upon arrival of the additional officers the incident was immediately resolved.

    The passenger in the white car, a woman aged 34, was also arrested. She was charged with obstructing police.

    The driver of the white car had not attempted to drive with the offender inside and was not arrested or charged.

    The offender’s escape attempt and his access to the white car were both deemed to have been opportunistic and not pre-planned.

    Acting Western District Commander Tim Dooley said:

    ”The two members of the public gave exceptional assistance to the officer and I would like to thank them for their actions.

    ”Without their help this incident would not have been resolved so quickly.

    ”I also commend the constable for her quick thinking and persistence in bringing the incident to such a swift close,” he said.

    TAS UPDATE Threat of Harm at University of Tasmania 

    Tuesday, 13 October 2015 – 11:44 am.

    Tasmania Police has analysed the threat made to UTAS and assessed that it is NOT a credible threat.

    ”As a result of analysing the threat, in conjunction with other jurisdictions, we can advise we do not consider the threat to be genuine and does not pose a risk to staff and students,” said Commander Glenn Frame.

    ”We have been liaising with UTAS on this matter and we can reassure students and staff that they can continue to go about their business,” said Commander Frame.

    The threat, which was a post on social site, was similar to those made to universities interstate.

    ”As the safety of the community, students and staff is a priority, we had deployed police resources to UTAS campuses as a precaution and for reassurance while an assessment was undertaken. Those resources will now be withdrawn,” he said.

    As always, if you anything suspicious or out of the ordinary call police on 131444 or the National Security Hotline 1800 1234 00.

    TAS Brighton Traffic Offences 

    Friday, 11 September 2015 – 5:30 pm.

    An 18year old man from Brighton appeared before the Hobart Magistrates Court today fronting a variety of traffic offences.

    The charges arose from an incident on the 11th July 2015 when the offender borrowed a motorcycle, which belonged to his father, and went for a ride along roads in the Brighton municipality.

    Police detected the offender riding in excess of the posted speed limits on three separate occasions during the one ride.

    The offender fled from police after being detected the first time. The court heard that the offender drove at excessive speeds, overtook other vehicles, and conducted dangerous manoeuvres with seemingly little regard for his own safety or that of his pillion passenger.

    He was later apprehended at his home address.

    In court this morning the 18 year old man from Brighton plead guilty to:

    • Dangerous Driving
    • Evading Police
    • Exceeding the speed limit x 3
    • Failing to display a p plate
    • Riding a non LAMS approve motorcycle when the holder of a provisional licence.

    TAS Reward in Christopher Watkins case 

    Friday, 31 July 2015 – 10:03 am.

    A $50,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to a prosecution in relation to the 2013 disappearance of Mayfield man Christopher Watkins.

    The reward is being offered because police now strongly suspect he was murdered.

    The reward, announced ahead of this year’s national Missing Persons Week, is to encourage those who know further information to come forward.

    Mr Watkins (aged 28) was last seen at a unit in Box St, Mayfield on the evening of 7 August, 2013.

    Inspector John King said:

    “Our investigation has been ongoing since 2013.

    “We are pursuing a certain line of enquiry in relation to his disappearance.

    “We believe that it is likely that there was more than one person involved in committing and/or covering up this crime.

    “There are people out there who know what happened and who know who is responsible.

    “We’re anticipating that with the passage of time and the inducement of this reward there will be people who may reconsider their choice to remain silent,” he said.

    National Missing Persons Week starts on Sunday 2 August, 2015. The theme this year is ‘follow your instincts’.

    The week aims to dispel the myth that you have to wait 24 hours before reporting someone missing.

    In Australia, a missing person is defined as anyone whose whereabouts are unknown, and there are immediate concerns for their safety and welfare.

    There are a further eight missing person cases that Tasmania Police investigators are highlighting as part of the week:

    • Ben Plowright, aged 20, was last seen at about 9pm on 30 May, 2015 in Perth. Despite an extensive and ongoing police investigation no sign of Ben has been found.
    • Andrew Jarman, aged 35, was last seen in Latrobe on 19 August 2012. He did not return home from a bike ride.
    • David Sushames, aged 45, was last seen in Devonport on 1 November, 2005. He was reported missing after not contacting family or friends for four days which they considered highly unusual.
    • Geoffrey Hay, aged 66, was last seen in Devonport on 27 August 2013. Police attended a fire at his house on 28 August, 2013 which resulted in major structural damage. He was not located at the scene.
    • Paul Byrne, aged 34, was last seen leaving the Rossarden Club in Fingal Valley at 2am on 20 September 1996. Police believe it is likely he met with foul play.
    • Matthias Lehmann, aged 38, was last seen in Devonport on 5 August 2012. He is believed to have boarded the Spirit of Tasmania ferry bound for Melbourne and has not been seen since.
    • Lester Lee, aged 41, was last seen at Torquay Rd in East Devonport at about 8pm on 19 December 2004.
    • Joao de Ornelas, aged 76, was last seen at the Tahune Air walk in Geeveston at 2pm on 3 March, 2010.

    Anyone who has information about any of the cases is asked to call police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.

    Mowbray man arrested following incident – Tasmania Police

    Thursday, 17 December 2015 – 4:12 pm.

    A 46 year old Mowbray man is in custody following the successful resolution of an incident where he lunged at police with a knife.

    Commander Brett Smith said today that the man was arrested shortly before 1pm today and is currently assisting police with their enquiries.

    “Police were called to Conway Street unit about 5am this morning following reports a man had breached a restraint order involving his mother.

    “Police entered the unit where a man was found to be carrying a kitchen knife.

    “A police officer was barricaded in a bathroom for a brief amount of time. The officer was freed by the removal of a side window, and is shaken but uninjured.

    “The mother was also safely removed from the unit.”

    Police and emergency services attended the scene, with further resources from the Special Operations Group also called in.

    Commander Brett Smith said that specialist negotiators utilising a range of tactics were used in an attempt to contact the man over several hours.

    “Officers took the opportunity to attempt communication with the man through the front door. The man then lunged at police with a knife.

    “Our officers very quickly subdued the man and took him into custody. No guns were used in the man’s arrest.”

    Commander Smith said that no police were injured in the incident. The man received minor injuries and was treated at the scene by Ambulance Tasmania.

    “Police would like to thank Mowbray residents for their patience and assistance,” Commander Smith said.

    The man is continuing to assist police with their enquiries, and it is expected to face charges including breach of a restraint order and assault.

    Counterfeit Money Investigation – Tasmania Police

    Tuesday, 15 December 2015 – 12:40 pm.

    Police continue to investigate reports of counterfeit $50.00 notes circulating in the North and North-West of the State.

    Detective Acting Sergeant Felicity BOYD of Devonport CIB confirms that the notes appear legitimate but that upon closer inspection, are fake.

    “All of the reports we are investigating specifically relate to $50.00 notes with serial number DF 1380 1449. We are finding that the texture of the notes is like paper and that the clear windows do not have the security features like genuine Australian currency,” Detective BOYD stated.

    She said that all offences relating to counterfeit money fall under Commonwealth law and if convicted, bear heavy fines and periods of imprisonment.

    Pursuant to the Crimes (Currency) Act 1981, persons convicted of making counterfeit money face a period of imprisonment of up to 14 years. For persons convicted of uttering counterfeit money and possessing counterfeit money, they face up to 12 years and 10 years imprisonment respectfully.

    Anyone with information as to the source of the counterfeit notes is encouraged to contact police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
