Approximately $750,000 worth of vehicles and load went up in flames on a property at Mole River when two Western Star trucks – one loaded with hay – were burnt out in the early hours of the morning. Investigations into the cause of the fire are continuing, although spontaneous combustion of the hay is suspected.
A Miles Street residence was robbed when a rear door had been left open overnight due to the heatwave. An opportunistic thief took a handbag from a table inside. Tenterfield Police sargeant James Boarden warned residents to be aware of the risk they take when premises are left unsecured.
Several other thefts from residences are being investigated.
Police dealt with two separate incidents of people failing to leave licensed premises when directed. One has been charged, while the other received an infringement notice.
