Police have charged two men with multiple offences committed in the Huon Valley area.

“As part of ongoing investigations, uniform members and detectives searched several addresses at Lymington and Grove this week and arrested two men in connection to a number of alleged offences including home burglaries in the Huon Valley,” said Inspector Colin Riley.

“During the searches, police recovered a significant amount of allegedly stolen property including power tools, imported wine and household electrical items.”

A 38-year-old man from Lymington has been charged with home burglary, unlawful possession, breach of bail, and drug and fraud offences. The man was arrested by police following a series of crimes allegedly committed in the Cygnet area. He has been remanded by the Magistrate to re-appear before the Court in mid-July.

A 32-year-old man from Grove has been charged with 2x home burglary, 2x stealing, unlawful possession of property, drug, firearm and traffic offences. He has been bailed to appear before the Court on 28 August 2024.

“Police thank members of the community who provided information which assisted in identifying and locating these offenders,” said Inspector Riley.

“This is a prime example of how local communities can support police to detect offenders.”
