current location and future movements
Bill had purchased a vehicle for Jeff in Newcastle so that they could both drive back along the route Jeff walked to revisit and thank the people that generously looked after him along the way. Bill recently drove the car up and connected with Jeff at Normanton....
Later Jeff woke me and aked "Where is the car?" I thought he was joking and asked "Where did you put it?". So called 000 and reported to police who though off duty arrived in less than ten minutes. After the usual descriptions of car etc, the police turned round to search the streets etc. Just round the corner the siren started and the chase was on. The police stopped chasing as it was too dangerous but kept following the tail lights. The offenders jumped out of the car while moving and took off. The car went through a barbed wire fence and came to a halt. The speed warning alarm was set at 180 Km! Police drove our vehicle back to Normanton.
were thrown out of the windows earlier and later collected by police.
Most things seem intact including our amateur radios. An amount of cash
was taken with some cash spilt loose in the back seat. Wallet later
found under clothes etc on the front seat. Camera too, with some video
footage taken by or new "friends". Police here in Normanton have
downloaded the video for examanation. The police were very fast to
respond, very kind and efficient. Some damage to the car, dents,
damaged bumper bar, paint scratches and windscreen rubber cut by the
barbed wire. All this without number plates as the car was half way
through Queensland registration.
