Blow hole break-ins

Share

POLICE would like to speak to any visitors to the Flinders blow hole and other back beach areas who saw a suspicious man loitering on Australia Day. He is believed to have broken into cars in the area.

Police particularly want to speak to those who saw the man at the blow hole car park, 11.30am-12.30pm, Saturday 26 January, and who reported his behaviour to the park ranger. 

Anyone who saw a suspicious man at the Bushrangers Bay, Ti Tree Creek or Flinders Ocean Beach car parks on that day should also contact police. 

Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, urges visitors not to leave valuables in the car. “Leave them at home or take them with you,” he said.

Anyone with information – particularly the person who called the rangers – is urged to contact Senior Detective Clayton Beckhouse, at Mornington Peninsula CIU, 5978 1400, or Leading Senior Constable Ian Huxtable, at Rosebud Police Station, 5986 0444.
