Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 11th 2009
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 12, 2009 MB Arrest linked to card fraud Video Online Watch it now at www.innerwestweekly.com.au POLICE have smashed a suspected multi- million dollar credit card fraud racket in the Inner West, arresting a man at Concord and seizing scores of allegedly stolen goods. Early last month, police were informed about retail store gift cards being sold at discount rates on eBAY. Police, with the help of eBAY, discovered an alleged syndicate selling a large range of expensive items online at cheap prices. The items included new LCD televisions, lap-top computers, cameras, power tools, G.P.S. systems and iPods. Police allege the syndicate bought more than $4.5 million in goods using fake credit cards bearing bank account details that had been skimmed or stolen. Officers from several commands, the region enforcement squad and a strike force executed search warrants at Concord, Croydon, Marrickville and Rydalmere on Tuesday. Police also searched a Summer Hill post office where it's alleged some of the items were stored, awaiting postage. Police arrested a 27-year-old man at the Concord address. Witnesses are urged to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. NEWS How a big night out turned nasty CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 1 AN Ashfield man was treated for stab wounds following a fight in Belmore Park, Haymarket, on Saturday night. The 21-year-old man, suffering multiple stab wounds to his back, was taken to St Vincent's Hospital, where he was in inten- sive care in a stable condition. A 17-year-old Georges Hall youth is also in a stable condition in the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital with similar wounds. Police on patrol entered the park shortly before 12.30am. They called for assistance and went to the aid of the two wounded men. Meanwhile, an 18-year-old Lakemba man fled to Central railway station, followed by police. A transit officer detained the man, who was arrested by police and taken to Redfern police station for questioning. The man was refused bail to appear in Parramatta Bail Court this week to face charges of affray, assaulting an officer, common assault, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. A crime scene was established in the park and several items seized for forensic exam- ination. Police also canvassed the area and obtained statements from witnesses. An investigation is continuing, with police seeking help to identify two other men in relation to the stabbing. Both are described as possibly being of Pacific Islander appearance. One of the men, described as being aged in his late teens or early 20s and of a medium to overweight build, was wearing a white shirt and red shorts. The second man, aged in his early 20s, was wearing a yellow T-shirt. Any witnesses are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 2 TWO men were arrested and had their cars confiscated for street racing in the Ashfield Local Area Command on Friday night. About 12.15am highway patrol officers detected two vehicles -- a blue Mazda MPS and a red Toyota Celica -- travelling at an estimated speed of 80km/h in a 60km/h zone on Parramatta Rd, near the intersection of Bland St. Police allege both vehicles revved their engines and accelerated on passing a stationary speed camera. Police pursued the vehicles, which were stopped about 1km west on Parramatta Rd. The two male drivers, aged 22 and 24, were arrested and issued with field court attendance notices on charges of exceeding the speed limit by over 30km/h and taking part in a race between vehicles. They are due to appear at Burwood Court on April 7. 3 A P-PLATE driver from Rhodes lost his licence after he was caught allegedly speeding at almost 60km/h over the legal speed limit. About 9.30pm last Thursday, Burwood police were patrolling the M4 motorway when they saw a black BMW speeding. Police followed the car onto Homebush Bay Drive, where it reached an alleged speed of 138km/h in an 80km/h zone. The 21-year-old driver from Rhodes had his P1 provisional driver's licence sus- pended on the spot. He was also issued with an infringement for speeding by more than 45km/h above the limit. weekly news 3 sources of power Avocadoes each 99c per unit Celery bunch 99c per unit Mushrooms 500g $5.98 per kg Potatoes 4kg 75c per kg $299 $299 99c 99c 3 Way Refrigerated Cooler 45L • Cools to 20-25°C below ambient temperature • Lasts 27 days with a full 9kg gas bottle (13.7g/h) Go Cruise 4.3" GPS Navigator • Latest version of Sensis mapping • Speed and red light camera alerts • Spoken directions including street names • MP4 player • Includes ALDI store locations $199 $299 smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 10/03/09 to 16/03/09 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
