Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 28th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 29, 2009 MB Setting the bar high in life saving ENFIELD Life Saving Club put on a remarkable performance at this year's Australian Royal Life Saving Society Cham- pionships. Four Enfield lifesavers were sent to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra where they competed against other state teams and 11 clubs. Megan Williams, 15, of Croydon Park, participated in the largest under-16 national competition and won two gold medals in CPR and line-throw, which involved her rescuing a swimmer against the clock. Coach Joanne Teagle said it was the first time in 10 years that an individual competi- tor had won a gold medal at a national level for under-16s. ''It's an amazing achievement, and for her to win two is exceptional,'' she said. Strathfield's Kate Shore, 13, took out a bronze medal in the under-14 competition for the 50m manikin carry which secured her a rank of sixth. Jonathan Radecki, 13, of Belfield, came seventh in his first under-14 national competition, and 17-year-old Scott Morrisey, of Ashbury, performed well in captaining the initiative team where they rescued 20 patients in different accidental scenarios. NEWS Woman charged in identity scam CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 4 1 A WOMAN has been charged over an alleged identity theft scam which in- volved mail being stolen from letterboxes at an Ashfield unit block. Police allege that between September and December 2008 mail was removed from letterboxes at the units and the details used in the offences. Police say $42,000 was allegedly trans- ferred from residents' accounts and $23,000 worth of goods was bought from shopping websites. As a result of their inquiries, Ashfield police executed a search warrant at a residential unit in Fourth Ave, Blacktown, last Wednesday and seized property and documents. A 22-year-old woman was arrested at the scene and taken to Blacktown police station for questioning. She was charged with 35 counts of obtaining money by deception, three counts of larceny, and one count of taking and driving a car without consent of the owner. She was refused bail to appear in Blacktown Local Court last Thursday. 2 A CROYDON man suffered head injur- ies after being hit by car in Drummoyne on Australia Day. The 68-year-old had been enjoying Aust- ralia Day celebrations with his wife when he apparently stepped from the kerb in Lyons Rd, near Victoria Rd, at 5.05pm and collided with a car, according to an NRMA CareFlight doctor who treated him. The accident rendered the man uncon- scious initially. An NRMA CareFlight team landed in Drummoyne Park and was escorted by police to the accident scene, where the man had quickly regained consciousness and was already being treated by ambulance paramedics. After stabilisation he was taken to St Vincent's Hospital by road ambulance to receive treatment for head and scalp injur- ies. He was in a stable condition on arrival at the hospital. 3 FOUR men with alleged links to the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang were arrested in Burwood on Thursday and questioned about drive-by shootings. The men were taken to Burwood police station where they were questioned about the shootings in Bobbin Rd, Sadlier, and Hill Rd, Lurnea, on December 10 last year. A 34-year-old Beverly Hills man, a 46-year-old Mascot man and two 21-year-old men from Bexley and Yagoona were all refused bail and are to reappear in court this week. They were all charged with two counts each of firing a firearm at a house with disregard for safety, unauthorised pos- session and use of a prohibited weapon, and one count of participation in a criminal group. Inquiries into the drive-by shootings are continuing. 4 A 22-YEAR-OLD man died from stab wounds in Auburn last Saturday. About 2.45am, Flemington Police were called to Cardigan St after receiving reports of an argument. Police found the man in the middle of the road with stab wounds to his chest. Ambulance officers attended the scene before the man was pronounced dead. A 20-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to Auburn police station where he was charged with murder. He was refused bail and was due to appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday. A strike force has been established to investigate the man's death.
