Five charged over theft of opal – Coober Pedy

SA police News
Three men and two boys have been arrested following the recent theft of a large quantity of precious opal at Coober Pedy. Following assistance from the local community, Coober Pedy Police arrested two youths after they allegedly attempted to sell some of the stolen opal in Coober Pedy on Sunday afternoon.
Further enquiries then lead police to search a number of premises resulting in the arrest of three Coober Pedy men.
The men aged 28, 26 and 24-years, all from Coober Pedy, were all arrested and charged with aggravated serious criminal trespass and theft. Two of the men have remanded in custody to appear in the Port Augusta Magistrates Court on Thursday 24 April.
The two teenaged boys aged 16 and 15 years also from Coober Pedy, were arrested and charged with dishonest dealings. They have been bailed to appear in court at a later date.
Enquiries are continuing with nearly half of the stolen opal now recovered.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.sa.crimestoppers.com.au


Biggest rain for 25 years

The rain which fell on the one day nearly two weeks ago measured about 115 mm (nearly five inches). It was almost as much as the one day's rainfall of about six inches in March 1989. McArdle's road train was bogged for about two days on the side of Flat Hill Road near the Stuart Highway.
