Suspicious devices found at Tweed business

A Tweed Heads business appears to have been targeted twice in one week by people intent on blowing it up.

Around 1.30pm on Saturday (January 11), police discovered suspicious items in a car that had been driven through the doors of the River Terrace business.

Police found two allegedly suspicious devices in the car and established a crime scene.

NSW Fire and Rescue officers, together with officers attached to the Police Rescue and Bomb Disposal Unit, subsequently rendered the devices safe.

Just four days earlier, on Tuesday January 7, staff at the business had discovered a suspicious device on the property.

On that occasion, police and NSW Fire and Rescue officers who were called to the scene deemed the device safe.

All items were seized for forensic examination and investigations into the incidents continue.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page.


One response to “Suspicious devices found at Tweed business”

  1. There is nothing to justify such violent action at any time. It seems to be feature of modern society that if you do not like what someone does, or says, you can blow him away.

    This is totally against all the Christian have been teaching for 2 millennia. Nor does Christianity have a monopoly in this philosophy. Actually the Buddhists claim that they had Christ during his formative teen years and indoctrinated him in this philosophy.
