Moree Police seek owners of stolen property

MOREE Police are holding more than 80 items believed to have been stolen during a string of home burglaries in Moree during the past 12 to 18 months and are now seeking the rightful owners.

The goods were seized after a search warrant was executed at a Moree address last Saturday.

Acting superintendent Andrew Hurst hopes local police can reunite people with their property soon.

“Detectives have been working through the recovered property to identify the owners of property which includes hand- and power-tools, hardware, electronics, phones, sporting equipment, musical instruments and jewellery,” Mr Hurst said.Stolen001

“Some of the pieces of jewellery are inscribed, which means they meant something to someone, but we just need to find out exactly who they meant something to.”

Included in the jewellery are pieces inscribed with Greg and I’m so proud to call you My Son.

Members of the public are urged to contact Barwon Detectives at Moree Police Station on (02) 6757 0799 if they can identify any property.

Proof of ownership will be required.

A 44-year-old man arrested at the search warrant was conveyed to Moree Police Station where he was charged with drug, firearm and property offences.

He is next expected before the courts on 20 February 2017.
