‘Irresponsible tenant’ turns abusive on homeowner

Lock changing turns tenant abusive

POLICE were forced to protect homeowners, after an irresponsible tenant piled verbal abuse on them while in the process of changing the locks.

Police were called to a Foott St address last Friday at 1.30pm to keep the peace while the owners changed the locks while the tenant was not at home.

Before the task could be completed, the 43-year-old male tenant has returned, and begun swearing and abusing police.

Police warned the man to cease his behaviour or risk arrest, but he turned his swearing and abuse against the homeowners.

He was subsequently arrested for public nuisance and transported to Roma watch house, before he was released. He is due to appear in court on March 3.

First time user caught red handed

INFORMATION received from a concerned citizen gave police enough motivation to attend a Currey St address on Friday night.

Police received a tip off that a known drug dealer had been seen at the home, and arrived to confront the home's resident at 8.15pm. A

35-year-old male was arrested for possession of drug and utensils. He was later released under the provisions of the Drug Misuse Act and offered drug diversion.

As a result, a suspect was nominated for supply. A 29-year-old Yuleba woman is subject to further police investigation in relation to supply.

Argument turns physical

A VERBAL argument quickly turned on Saturday afternoon, with police forced to attend a Russell St home.

It is alleged a 31-year-old Roma male entered the home of a 26-year-old woman known to him.

A verbal argument ensued before it turned physical, with him allegedly punching and shoving her.

The male decamped before police arrived. He was later arrested and charged with burglary, wilful damage, and obstruct police.
