DETECTIVES from Hastings and Frankston combined on Monday last week to raid a Clyde property and recover an extensive collection of stolen property.
Detective Sergeant Mel Nixon, of Hastings CIU, said items found in a shipping container in the early-morning raid included a “tinnie” with outboard motor, six trailers, excavator, tractor, 7gm of the drug ice, radio jamming device, five Pee Wee motor cycles, numerous power tools and a rifle.
A 55-year-old man has been charged with trafficking ice, possessing ice, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, handling stolen goods and possessing the proceeds of crime. He has been remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 15 September.
“We have been able to reunite many of the items with their owners,” Detective Nixon said. “They are pretty happy.”
