8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 19, 2009 MB NEWS Strike force lays fraud charges CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 4 1 POLICE from Strike Force Gamut have arrested a 23-year-old man at Silver- water Jail and charged him with 30 offences relating to frauds in excess of $200,000. Strike Force Gamut was established to investigate the activities of a Chinese organised crime group engaged in extensive identity crime offences in NSW. The man will appear in Central Local Court on April 6. 2 RESIDENTS of a Drummoyne unit block were evacuated when a fuse box caught fire in an underground carpark on Saturday. The fire happened at 5.45pm in a unit block on Lyons Rd. Police and fire brigade attended but no one was injured. The fire is not believed to be suspicious and might have been caused by faulty wiring, police say. 3 A MAN was assaulted and robbed of his backpack in Cooper St, Strathfield, on March 10. The man was walking home from the railway station about 11.15pm when he was approached by two men who robbed him. One man is described as being in his mid- 20s, 175cm tall, medium build with blond, short hair and olive skin. He was clean shaven and wearing a cream T-shirt. The other man was dressed in black clothes but no other description is avail- able. Witnesses should phone Burwood police on 9745 8499. 4 DETECTIVES spent last Friday night examining an Auburn unit where a man died following a fire. Emergency workers were called to a top- floor unit in Chisholm Rd about 5.45pm. Fire Brigade personnel forced entry into the unit, where they found an unconscious man. He was taken outside and firefighters and ambulance officers conducted CPR, however he died at the scene. The man was suffering several external injuries to his body, thought to be stab wounds, and not caused by the fire. Neighbouring units were evacuated and temporary accommodation was found. Most residents were allowed to return to their units during the evening. No one else was injured. The man's body was taken to Glebe for a post-mortem examination. It is believed he was in his 40s. Investigations continue and, as the cause of the fire remains unknown, the blaze is being treated as suspicious. Sneaky thefts on the increase FIONA BRADY ASHFIELD police are reminding house- holders to lock their doors and windows after a string of sneak-in thefts over the past three weeks. Eight houses, mainly on the north side of Ashfield, have been targeted by opportunist thieves since the beginning of March. The robberies include: March 4: A thief removed a fly screen from the open window of a house on Liverpool Rd and stole a handbag from the bedroom. Also on March 4. A house in Charlotte St was robbed by someone who entered the house through an unlocked door to the laundry. March 6. A thief reached through an open window of a house on Stanton Rd, Haberfield and stole a bag. Ashfield's Acting Crime Manager, Det- Acting Insp Ian McCarthy said that while he didn't want to alarm people, the robberies were an ''increasing trend''. ''They are getting in through open win- dows or open doors, even when people are home or in the backyard,'' he said. He said it was ''not easy to tell'' if the same person or people were responsible for the robberies but the targets were jewellery or money -- items that were easy to carry and dispose of. He urged people to be vigilant and keep valuable items out of sight. ''Lock your house up as much as you can. ''If you lock it up, they might bypass your place or we might catch them in the act.'' Anyone with any information about any of these offences should phone Ashfield police on 9797 4099 or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. weekly news Compound Mitre Saw with Laser • No load speed: 5000rpm • Aluminium base plate • Features extension bar • Saw blade diameter: 210mm • Cutting capacity: Mitre 0, Bevel 0: 60 x 120mm, Mitre 45, Bevel 45: 30 x 80mm, Mitre 45, Bevel 0: 60 x 90mm and Mitre 0, Bevel 45: 35 x 120mm Bananas per kg $1.69 per kg Rockmelons each $1.49 per unit Brown Onions 1.5 kg 99c per kg Red Delicious Apples 1kg $2.49 per kg $4999 $89 ea 1year warranty $249 $149 $149 $169 Wooden Doll House • Traditional wooden doll house with opening windows and large rooms • Includes 25 pieces of furniture • Made from quality rubberwood with handcrafted pine furniture • Size (approx): 60cm(W) x 32cm(D) x 42.5cm(H) smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 17/03/09 to 23/03/09 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
