Police have called on residents to help them locate Melton’s ‘most wanted’ offenders.

Star Weekly, in partnership with Victoria Police, today launched a new series calling on residents to help police clean up the streets.

Melton’s Most Wanted will be a regular feature in our print edition. It will also be posted on Melton & Moorabool Star Weekly’s Facebook page and online at www.starweekly.com.au

Victoria Police Inspector Dave Byrt said everyone can, and should, contribute to community safety.

“The community are our eyes and ears, and our success in this regard depends on community participation,” he said.

“I would encourage everyone to closely follow Melton’s Most Wanted and Star Weekly, and contact Crime Stoppers if they have any information concerning these persons of interest.”

Star Weekly’s editor-in-chief Stephen Linnell said it is important the whole community get behind Melton police.

“Our police do a fantastic job. But they need the community to help them,” he said.

“This initiative will hopefully result in offenders being tracked down, caught and dealt with by the courts.

“We urge the community to share our Facebook posts and the images in print and online, to help our police.”

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of these offenders should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or local police on 9747 7999.
