The man was charged and bailed to appear at the Cobram Magistrates’ Court on December 13.

A screwdriver or similar object was used to pierce the tyre wall, costing the victim about $150 to replace the tyre.

The thieves targeted unlocked vehicles and rifled through consoles and glove boxes before moving on.

Detectives are appealing for information.

●A $3500 mountain bike was stolen from the front of a unit in Scott Crt last week.

The bike was a Merida brand 26-inch mountain bike, blue and white and had dual suspension.

Highway patrol

Cobram Highway Patrol will be conducting Operation LOW aimed at drivers travelling in the range of 105km/h to 108km/h in 100km/h zones during October.

Drivers will be handed an information card covering ‘Five Facts On Speed Limits’.

Checks will be conducted on licences, registration and vehicle safety.

Road trauma affects the entire community and a reduction of overall speed by 1km/h would result in a five per cent reduction in road trauma.
