Local Police News- On The Beat
Extra night-time police patrols have started in the Lennox Head area to deal with the recent wave of crime and vandalism. Inspector Bill McKenna said Lennox Head had been very quiet for the last 12 months and the extra patrols were in response to a recent spike in crime over the last couple of weeks. He said the patrols were an ongoing initiative leading up to the warmer months when things were normally a bit busier.
A 20-year-old Lismore man was located safe and well after spending the night lost on Mt Warning on Sunday night. The man set out on a bushwalk with friends on Sunday afternoon and became lost after leaving the designated walking track to take a short cut. Police and members of the Volunteer Rescue Association conducted a search of the area, however, the search was called off at 10.30pm due to deteriorating weather conditions. At about 7.30am on Monday the man made contact with emergency services via CB radio, and made his way down the mountain. He was uninjured.
