Man charged over June smash-and-grab

A 47-YEAR-OLD man has been charged following an alleged smash-and-grab break-in at the Moore Park Beach Pharmacy back in June.

Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Senior Sergeant Joe Hildred said a four-man team of detectives from the State Flying Squad had been in Bundaberg for the past week helping local detectives in cracking down on property offences.

"As a result, nine people have been arrested and charged with 18 offences," he said.

It was during the week that the Flying Squad helped to solve the break-in at the Moore Park Beach Pharmacy that happened overnight on June 26.

"The 47-year-old man has been charged in relation to receiving stolen property, namely quantities of prescription medication, which is alleged to have been stolen from the pharmacy," he said.

Det Snr Sgt Hildred said the man would appear in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on October 24.

"The man has been placed on a curfew and other bail conditions," he said.

Det Snr Sgt Hildred said other homes were searched including Paradise St, in Thabeban where a 43-year-old man was charged in relation to a number of drug offences.

A 53-year-old Sharon man has also been charged with allegedly trafficking "large quantities" of marijuana over a five-year period.

Det Snr Sgt Hildred said an Avoca St home was searched on Wednesday, where officers alleged found quantities of marijuana, ecstasy, MDMA and steroids in both liquid and tablet form, as well as a set of nunchucks.

"One resident has been questioned, but investigations are ongoing," he said.
