Oberon police investigate after paver thrown through home's window

POLICE will test a purple bike for fingerprints after a paver was thrown through the window of a property on Raleigh Street.

Police were called to the property on Sunday following the incident the previous night.

None of the occupants who were sleeping inside the home at the time was injured by the smashed glass or paver, which landed on the floor inside the house.

A purple bike which had been left at the home was taken by police for forensic tests while officers will also review CCTV footage from nearby houses as they continue their inquiries.

Break and enter

POLICE are hunting two males in relation to an attempted break and enter in Dr Perkins Crescent on Sunday night.

A young male was seen by a neighbour in the rear yard of a house about 11pm, near a rear shed where the door had been pulled open.

When the male realised he had been seen, he jumped the back fence onto Tarana Road where another male was waiting.

Both males got into an older model blue dual cab utility and drove off towards Albion Street.

Police attended and found the shed had been significantly damaged in an attempt to gain entry. Inquiries are continuing.

Anyone with any information is requested to contact Oberon police on 6336 1000.

Stolen goods

OBERON police have received a report of a bike and skateboard being stolen from a house in Queen Street.

The items had been left at the front of the house but were out of public view.

The bike was later recovered by police at a house on Raleigh Street (see above). The skateboard was found broken in two pieces at the skate park.

Stay alert

FOLLOWING a spate of anti-social behaviour, thefts and reports of damage, Oberon police are asking residents to be aware of anyone walking the streets at night and any suspicious behaviour.

"It's very disappointing that the good people in this town have been targeted with this behaviour by what seems to be a small group of individuals with no regard for other people and their property," police said.

"Police have information regarding possible offenders involved in the anti-social behaviour and property theft and will be making every effort to put them before the court. Police ask that anyone with any information [should] contact them."
