Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 18th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 19, 2009 MB Wet weather call for help FIONA BRADY THE wet weather has kept Canada Bay SES busy, with four local homes calling for help with leaking roofs since the weekend. On Valentine's Day a man in Concord needed a tar- paulin put over his roof and on Sunday, the local SES crew received a call from from a Drummoyne woman who reported cracked tiles and water coming through her light fittings. Leaking roofs were also reported in homes in Five Dock and Cabarita. Canada Bay SES deputy local controller Bill Hoyles said the local SES needed volunteers to work in the office and answer emerg- ency phone calls. Full training will be given. ''In large-scale emerg- encies most of the work of our office volunteers takes place in airconditioned comfort at our Regatta Rd headquarters,'' Mr Hoyles said. ''It provides an oppor- tunity to be a part of the action for those for whom climbing on roofs and chain-sawing trees is not their cup of tea.'' Interested people should phone Caroline on 9747 8022. For assistance with storm damage, phone the SES on 132 500.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Burwood police on 9745 8499. 2 BURWOOD police have arrested two men in connection with an alleged crime syndicate which has been stealing spare wheels from four-wheel drive cars. Police say the gang targeted RAV4 and Honda CRV cars parked in Sydney shop- ping centres and stole the wheels, which they then sold to outlets in western sydney. Police say shopping centres in Burwood and Rhodes were among those targeted. Following a spate of these thefts in the local area, Burwood police's Proactive Crime Team began an investigation which resulted in the arrests of two men last week. The men, who are from Punchbowl and Edensor Park, have been charged with a combined total of 20 offences, ranging from larceny to traffic matters. They have been refused bail, pending their next court appearances. Investigations are continuing. 3 A SHOPKEEPER in North Strathfield was assaulted by robbers who stole cash from his store last week. The two thieves who had their faces covered with shirts, entered the grocery store on George St about 2.25pm on Sunday, February 7. After assaulting the store owner, they fled with the cash in a silver Toyota Camry which had its rear window smashed. The car was last seen travelling south along George St. One of the thieves was wearing blue overalls and the other was wearing long, dark pants and a shirt. Anyone with information should phone Burwood police on 9745 8499. 4 AN Auburn jewellery store employer restrained a 16-year-old boy from trying to rob the store.
