Police remind rural households

RURAL dwellers are again being reminded by police to secure their property after a quad bike was stolen at Killarney late last week.

A spokesman for the Warwick Police Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) said the bike was taken from a property on Border Rd on Thursday.

The police warning follows stealing convictions in the Warwick Magistrates Court last week of two men who were involved in a spate of farm thefts in recent months.

"The blue Yamaha quad bike with a fold-up spray boom attached was taken from the property sometime before 2.30am that day," the CIB spokesman said.

"We just urge people in rural areas to advise police of any unusual vehicle movements, particularly in the Killarney, Yangan, Tannymorel and surrounding areas."

Meanwhile police have charged a 26 year old Killarney male with possession of 1.5 kilograms of cannabis, worth about $37,000.

A search warrant was executed at his residence on Friday and he is due to appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court at a later date, with his 24 year old female partner ordered to complete a drug diversion program.

In other police news, a 36 year old St George man was found with an amphetamine lab in the back of his vehicle when pulled over for a random breath test on Wallace St at 4.15pm on Saturday.

He has been charged with the production and supply of a dangerous drug and was taken into custody, to appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court this morning.

Another man was arrested in Warwick at the weekend in connection with a recent break and enter offence committed at the Toowoomba Brothers Rugby League Club.

He was issued with a notice to appear in court at a later date.

Call Crime Stoppers with information on suspicious activity on 1800 333 000.
