Police probe Devonshire burglary

A police car hit a Government van as officers drove away from a burglary scene.

Police were called to the Chaingate Hill, Devonshire home after it was broken into while occupied.

The resident wasn’t harmed during the theft but reported an item of jewellery was stolen.

Said a Police spokesman: “A marked police car responding to the scene was involved in a damage-only collision with a Government van in the area. The police vehicle received front-end damage while the Government vehicle received relatively minor damage. There were no reported injuries.”

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the Chaingate Hill area of Devonshire between 10.30am and 11.15am on Wednesday to telephone 295-0011.

A 75-year-old woman was hospitalised after she was involved in a collision with a car in St George.

The woman was walking on York Street around 2.50pm when the accident occurred.

She was taken to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for treatment. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The 31-year-old Warwick man driving the car was not injured.

Police are investigating the accident.
