Missing goods found in field

AN Avoca family was reunited with items allegedly stolen during a break-in seven months ago, after they were found in a paddock yesterday.

A resident of Avoca Street, Avoca, telephoned police after discovering a wheelie bin stuffed with electrical goods, computers, clothing and torches, abandoned in a nearby field.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Mike McLellan said the items were traced back to a break-in at an Avoca home on March 12.

“They were hidden in the paddock for an unknown reason,” Sgt McLellan said.

“The items have been returned to their owners.”

He said a 31-year-old man was charged in June with receiving tainted property, in relation to the break-in.

Scrap metal and other suspected stolen goods were also discovered in a cane field near the intersection of Marshall and Rowlands roads in Burnett Heads about 6am yesterday.

The items are not believed to be linked, but police are investigating how they came to be in the field.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone Bundaberg Police on 4153 9111.

Fight charges

TWO men were charged after a fight opposite Bundaberg Police Station early yesterday morning.

A large group of people gathered to watch when the men allegedly starting brawling at the Bourbong Street Caltex about 12.15am.

A 22-year-old man from Bundaberg was charged with public nuisance and a second man, also 22, was charged with public nuisance and obstructing police.

They will appear at Bundaberg Magistrates Court at a later date.
