Police investigating explosive incidents in New Norfolk

Two youths will be proceeded against in relation to several incidents in New Norfolk last week where home-made explosive devices caused minor damage to property.

In the early hours on 25 and 26 January, police received reports of loud bangs in the areas of Pioneer Avenue, Kensington Street, Cowburn Road, and Hazelwood Road.

Minor property damage was caused to a bus shelter, letter box and window. No injuries were reported.

As a result of police attendance, officers from New Norfolk Police, Bridgewater CIB and the Bomb Response Group conducted a number of searches in the New Norfolk area in the days following and police have interviewed several youths who are being proceeded against for relevant offences.

Police are confident that they have seized all relevant materials and have safely disposed of any remaining explosive devices.

It is a timely reminder of the dangers surrounding explosives and that it is an offence to make any explosive device. Should a member of the public see any suspicious item, do not handle or move the item. In these circumstances, police should be called at the earliest opportunity so they can attend and make an assessment.

Police urge anyone with information in relation to the explosions in the New Norfolk area last week to contact either Bridgewater Criminal Investigation Branch on 131 444 or you can report anonymously to crimestopperstas.com.au
