Updated: Apr 15
A busy weekend for Hawkesbury Police Area command officers kicked off on Friday evening with a break and enter and malicious damage to three North Richmond houses which are still being built.
The crimes happened between Friday evening and Saturday morning with damage to all three houses and property stolen from one of them.
Police have increased their patrols in the area and residents are urged to contact police if they witness any suspicious behaviour.
On Sunday evening around 6.30pm, a young man was seen by police driving erratically in the South Windsor area.
Officers lost sight of the vehicle but were assisted by members of the public who told them which way the vehicle had gone. Police then saw the vehicle travelling at extremely high speed along Hawkesbury Valley Way.
The driver was stopped and spoken to. He produced a NSW digital drivers licence. No reason was given for his manner of driving. The 18-year-old was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice to appear before Windsor Local Court on a charge of Driving in a Dangerous Manner. His licence was suspended on the spot.
Later Sunday evening, around 7:45pm, an Isuzu was travelling along Cattai Road, Cattai when for unknown reasons, the vehicle left the road and collided with a guard rail just before the bridge, causing significant damage. The driver left the scene.
NSW RFS and Fire and Rescue were called by police to remove the damaged structure.
Police are still looking for the driver of the vehicle.
