Police catch man hiding in cold room
AN ACCUSED burglar has been denied bail after a break-in at the Stockyard Hotel at the weekend.
Police were called to the Percy St pub just before 4am and discovered an open window. Officers searched the premises and found the 39-year-old Warwick man hiding in a cold room, police said.
The man was arrested and charged without incident.
He remains behind bars and will face Warwick Magistrates Court next week.
In another incident, a man accused of unleashing a tirade of abuse and threats at police officers at the weekend has been charged.
Warwick acting officer-in-charge Shane Reid said officers were patrolling Victoria St in the early hours of Sunday morning when the man became belligerent.
"Police stopped to speak to him and he continued the tirade of threats towards police, which led to his being arrested and charged with obstructing police and public nuisance," he said.
Another man who allegedly threatened people has come to police attention.
Officers went to Percy St at 11.15pm on Saturday and after speaking with the 23-year-old Warwick man, allegedly found a drug utensil in his pocket. He will appear in court at a later date.
Stanthorpe crime news
A Stanthorpe man allegedly caught with amphetamines last week remains behind bars as he awaits his court date.
Stanthorpe police officer-in-Charge Mark Ireland said the man has been charged with possessing drugs, breaching bail and obstructing police.
"Police attended a Whiskey Gully Rd address last Tuesday night, seeking a male person wanted on warrant (and) believed to be at that location," he said.
"The 18-year-old was apprehended as he fled from the address, resulting in a return-to-prison warrant being executed upon him."
Stanthorpe police were also hunting a man they believed to be responsible for breaking into the same residence twice in three days.
Senior Sergeant Ireland said the resident disturbed the intruder at the Connor St address on Sunday, causing the man to take off empty-handed.
It was alleged the same person also entered the house last Thursday and stole money, Nike shoes and an Adidas tracksuit.
