POLICE have continued to be very busy issuing penalty notices to drivers in the district over the holiday period. Penalty notices have been issued for numerous offences, most commonly speeding, but also for failing to have proper control of a vehicle and various other offences.

In one of the worst cases, a 25-year-old Foster woman was detected driving at 132 kph on the Promontory Road at Foster. She was fined $328 and four demerit points and also lost her licence for a month.


POLICE are investigating a break-in which occurred at Dezzy and Nic’s Takeaway in Foster’s main street last Saturday night or in the early hours of Sunday morning. After breaking in, the offender (or offenders) stole about $300 in cash.


ON JANUARY 18 at 5.45am the outdoor cinema complex at Tidal River in Wilsons Promontory National Park was broken into by having a roller door forced. Two offenders stole around $1,000 in cash.

Police working at Tidal River made enquiries which resulted in a 15-year-old from Ferntree Gully and a 13-year-old youth from Belgrave South being charged with burglary and theft from the cinema. Resulting enquiries revealed that the same two youths had stolen alcohol from various campsites in the Park prior to committing the burglary. Both received police cautions.


ON JANUARY 15, police recovered a stolen Queensland-registered vehicle at Fish Creek. The silver and blue coloured 1989 Ford four-wheel drive had been dumped on a bush track at the end of Eastaways Road. It had been stolen from Cowes between January 6 and January 9.

Police are seeking any witnesses who may have seen this vehicle in the vicinity of Eastaways Road. They are asked to contact the Foster police station.
