On the 13th of January 2021, 77 year old Evelyn reported that an unknown offender had entered her year yard and stolen a hand made wheelbarrow. The garden ornament, made by her elderly husband, held sentimental value to Evelyn and she was understandably upset by the incident.
Three months later, after a thorough investigation, Whittlesea Police member Constable Oostermeyer-Ryan recovered the stolen wheel barrow and on the 23rd of April 2021 happily returned the stolen wheel barrow its rightful owners. Outcomes like this always put a smile on our faces.
