Lettuce to the Editor

As a writer you never really know what is going to strike a chord with your audience. What will inspire them? Make them think? Make them change their mind? Make them angry? After more than two decades of publishing I am still surprised by what rocks a reader’s boat. About a week ago I discovered that a lot of people have strong opinions on the humble iceberg. I’m not talking about the one that took out theTitantic. I’m talking about the one that has been sinking wallets at the supermarket.

Police have released CCTV vision following a home invasion earlier this year in Mullumbimby in the hope the public may be able to help identify two of the men in the video.

At 8.40pm on Sunday February 11, three men, allegedly armed with handguns, a rifle and a sword, entered a house on Poplar Street and threatened the occupants; a 60-year-old man, his two sons – aged 22 and 13 – and two friends.

The incident was reported to police on Wednesday 14 February 2018 and an investigation was commenced.

The following day, a 23-year-old man was arrested and charged with special aggravated enter dwelling with intent, affray, breach of bail, and break and enter with intent.

Police are now appealing for information to locate two other men depicted in the CCTV vision who may be able to assist with inquiries.

The first man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 20s, 175cm tall with a medium build. He has short hair and a tattoo under his left breast.

The second man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, also aged in his early 20s, 175cm tall, medium build with facial Hair. He was wearing a felt hat and has a tattoo on his lower left leg.

Investigations are continuing.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
