Ram-Raid Spree on Shepparton Businesses
A man rammed his Ford Falcon into several Shepparton businesses on Sunday night on the Goulburn Valley Highway, Maude Street and Wyndham Street.
Police say he started ram-raiding businesses around 6:30 PM where he damaged the offices of Nine News, Prime News and the Shepparton News.
He also targeted Stockdale and Leggo and a Centrelink office where he damaged a glass panel and sliding doors at the entrance. He was then arrested at a BP service station in Kialla an hour after the first offence.
According to reports, Stockdale and Leggo sustained extensive damage to the front of the building. The man who committed the ram-raid spree currently faces 14 charges at the magistrate’s court, one of those being reckless driving
