CRIME WATCH: Local cars broken into, Crows Nest counterfeit note warning – and online scammers hit lower north shore residents.

Published On: May 12, 2021


A Reynold Street resident was woken early last Friday morning after hearing someone attempting to break into his vehicle.

The man looked out his window around 4.00am and observed a white SUV parked near his vehicle before it left the scene. The man later noticed that tools were missing from his vehicle.


Police are investigating several reports of theft that occurred overnight on 4 May.

A Porsche and Mercedes were broken into on Wolseley Road with cash stolen. Police say offenders also attempted to gain entry to a Hyundai parked on the same street.

Thieves also hit Rawson St on the same night, with a wallet ripped from a parked Mazda and a Lexus stolen on Stanton Rd.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious that evening is urged to call North Shore Police or Crimestoppers.

Police were patrolling in Medusa Street on 5 May when they observed a suspicious vehicle. Police stopped the vehicle which was being driven by a 26-year-old man from Balgowlah Heights.

Several passengers had to evacuate from the bus where it had stopped just before the Willoughby Road exit around 3.30pm.

Emergency services attended the scene and NSW Fire and Rescue extinguished the fire. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined but is believed to be due to an electrical shortage or mechanical failure.
