Potential Copycat Ram-Raid in Sussex

A forklift was used to demolish the wall of a co-op supermarket in Sussex last week which resulted in three thieves getting away with an unknown amount of cash from an ATM. The group then abandoned the forklift to escape in another vehicle, leaving what a police spokeswoman said was “Significant damage” inside the store and to its exterior wall. This burglary comes only months after a similar attack on a supermarket in South Morang, Victoria, where thieves used a front-loader tractor to ram-raid an ATM and the entrance of the premises (http://www.australianbollards.com  ...read more

Coles Supermarket Ram-Raided in Seaford

Coles Supermarket Ram-Raided in Seaford

CCTV captured a ute smashing through the entrance of a milk bar, a Coles supermarket and a smoke shop last week. The footage also shows the vehicle crashing into benches and shopping trollies before ram-raiding the roller door of a smoke shop. Police believe their objective was to steal cigarettes, although they left empty-handed. Although this kind of ram-raid is one of the most common forms of commercial burglary in Australia, there is something that can be done to deter ram-raiders and burglars when it’s most needed. Burglars prefer early-morning ram-raids, as this p  ...read more

The proposed train line will span from Cheltenham to Werribee for 90 kilometres, linking outer suburbs to each other and has been described as “the biggest public transport project in Australian history.” What does this mean for Melbourne?

Celebrating Sir Donald Bradman's 110th Birthday

Today marks Australian cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman’s 110th birthday. His test scores are still incomparable with anyone else who has played the game, making a total of almost 7,000 runs over 52 tests. And his statue can now be found protecting sports fans at Adelaide Oval. At the peak of his career the English cricket team created the Bodyline method of bowling, which was intended to attack the batsman’s body. This offensive hostile method proved difficult for batsmen but not for Bradman, who managed to curb the effect of offensive bowling tactics whic  ...read more

Ram Raid Thieves Make Destructive Blunder

Another day and another ram raid; this time in the suburb of Keysborough. Early on Tuesday morning, a pair of masked burglars rammed a stolen truck into Kingsclere Shopping Centre. Their target was an ATM inside the centre, but things didn’t quite go as planned. After managing to get the truck wedged between the ATM and a newsagency, they had to call for backup. A third accomplice arrived in another stolen vehicle – a Holden Commodore – and attempted to ram the truck to free it. But it was a futile attempt, only managing to further damage the veh  ...read more

Perth Business Owner Taken For a Ride

An early morning ram-raid has potentially cost a Perth business owner tens of thousands of dollars on Thursday. The event which occurred at around 2am, involved a gang of masked thieves ramming their way into Kalamunda Cycles with a four-wheel drive. Using bolt cutters, they stole some of the most expensive bikes in the store; a haul totalling around $16,000 in value. Jo Bennett - the owner - was alerted by the store alarm but was forced to watch helplessly while it was robbed and damaged. We can add this event to the list that forces us to recognize the im  ...read more

Saving Space For a Fitter Future

Saving Space For a Fitter Future

Australia’s population continues to rise. Estimates from the United Nations on Wednesday delivered us a number just short of 25 million people, revealing a solid increase of over 300,000 since last year. Our larger cities’ CBD’s and university campuses are certainly noticing the increase. It’s a good thing for both tourism and education that our hot spots are so active but it does raise some issues. Notably, the lack of space for securing of bikes. If there isn’t somewhere to safely chain up bikes people may stop riding them. Less pe  ...read more

Upgrades to Melbourne’s Busiest Tram Corridor

The tram corridor on St Kilda Road and Swanston Street is one of the busiest in the world. It’s also Melbourne’s most crowded and a notorious stop for commuters. The proposed new interchange, named ANZAC Station, will include what the City of Melbourne has called a “super stop”, which will reduce pressure on vehicles, trams and trains by allowing access via four entry points to bike and pedestrian paths, tram stops and a train station, all in the one place. NJM Group supports City of Melbourne taking positive steps towards a cleane  ...read more

Protecting 7-Eleven

Early on Wednesday morning a gunman entered a Springvale 7-Eleven store with the intent to rob it. The incident ended with an employee being shot in the elbow and the robber fleeing. This has not been a solitary event. Earlier this month, a Richmond 7-Eleven hosted a robbery and last year we saw a terrifying incident where a woman attacked complete strangers with an axe. All of these events occurred during the early hours of the morning. Priding themselves on providing convenience around the clock, 7-Elevens’ 24-hour service policy is an important part of the chai  ...read more
