Imbil Police wrap, May

The Crime Stoppers fundraising bowls day was held on April 30 at the Imbil Bowls Club. It was a great day out and raised over $2,500 for Crime Stoppers. A fantastic effort by all the organisers and volunteers for all the work that was put into this event.

Sergeant Robert West from the Gympie Education and Training Office attended the Imbil Rural Watch meeting held on May 1. Sergeant West provided an informative talk in relation to domestic and family violence and why it remains an important issue for police. The next meeting is due to be held on June 5 at 7.30pm at the Kandanga Hall and everyone is welcome to attend.

The next Mary Valley Blue light is due to be held at on Friday, June 9 between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at the Kandanga Hall on Main Street. It’s open to children between 8 and 15 and the cost is $5.

A 20-year-old man from Bollier is due to appear at the Gympie Magistrates later this month regarding possession of dangerous drug. On May 12, police from the Imbil and Kenilworth Police Stations conducted a search warrant which resulted in locating over a kilogram of dried cannabis at the address.

The Easter period saw multiple persons issued with infringement notices for a range of traffic offences such as speeding, driving unregistered and uninsured vehicles. A 38-year-old man was issued with a notice to appear for disqualified driving at Kandanga and he is due to appear at the Gympie Magistrates Court on June 1.

There have been a number of instances of property theft and vandalism at a number of schools within the Mary Valley. A reminder that persons should not be on school grounds outside of school hours without permission first being obtained by the school.

The Imbil Police Station is open for Queensland Transport and police queries on the following days:
