Man arrested after chopper catches ‘strange behaviour’
A ROUTINE training exercise has led to the arrest of a 33-year-old Buxton man after alleged suspicious behaviour was detected from the sky.
Police will allege the man failed to stop for police on September 27 on Murphy St at Point Vernon, on October 1 on Barolin St in Bundaberg and on Sunday October 18 on Rosedale Rd at North Bundaberg.
About 7.30pm on Monday Polair observed a man at a property and directed police to an address.
Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Glenn Cameron said support from Polair1 enabled ground crews respond to a Kensington property.
"On the evening of the 19th of October police arrested a 33-year-old male for a number of offences including stealing and dangerous operation of a vehicle, this arrest was with the support of Polair1," he said.
Jamie Gene Huth was listed to appear in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Tuesday but made no application for bail.
