Crime Stoppers Week 2017, TAS

A very precious high performance car was recently returned to its owner following an information report provided to police by members of the public, Tasmania Police say.

At the time the investigating officer commented that it was a fortunate timely recovery. “It was,” said Acting Inspector Penny Reardon. “From the information we received we were able to locate the vehicle within a couple of hours.”

“On this occasion, vigilant members of the public noticed the car and made the call, alerting police to the cars location,” she said.
“This was a particularly noticeable high performance vehicle. On regular occasions, vehicles can sit parked on a street for days before someone will call it in,” she said.
“During Crime Stoppers Week, we are encouraging everyone to contact police or Crime Stoppers with information relating to stolen motor vehicles.”
