Police were following up enquiries in relation to an ongoing investigation and discovered two men at the rear of the property.

Police approached both males and identified a 28-year-old as being in breach of his bail conditions for other offences.

At the same time police also noticed a white Toyota Hilux utility hidden at the rear of the garage where the two males were talking.

The vehicle and all it’s identifiable numbers and registration plates matched those of the vehicle reported stolen by the 28-year-old in February.

The Toyota Hilux utility valued at $25,000 was subject to an insurance claim.

The owner of the vehicle has been charged with fraud offences.

Enquiries are still continuing.

Ramped-up efforts: Rotary Club of South West Rocks Rotary members Sandra Brandon, Diana Clark, Jim Crisp and Chris Parke and their colleagues have worked hard to reach the $50,000 skate park construction target.

The service club has raised the $50,000 required to fund a new double skate bowl, which will stand next to the existing facility at Philip Dve.

It has taken 10 years to bring the project to this stage, with construction set to begin mid-August.

“Weather permitting, it will take three weeks to complete it,” club secretary and youth director Diana Clark said.

“Last year we raised $8000 towards the skatepark, which is our major project.

“$4000 of that came from the SWR Country Club.

“Our vision is environment, health and education, so this fits in well with that.”

Out-going president Jim Crisp said much of the money had come from fixed-term deposit accounts the Rotary Club had opened.

Club treasurer Sandra Brandon said the skate park was part of the Rotarians’ commitment to bringing together the community.

There had been a lot of consultation on the upgraded facility with Kempsey Shire Council, which will manage the project, and local youth, who had waved away offers of a water bubbler and more seating in favour of the skate bowl.

“This was about getting them to have ownership of the skatepark, so they can use it and look after it,” Mrs Brandon said.

Chris Parke, services director of the Rotary Club, said the facility was used by enthusiasts of all ages.

The bowl will be installed by Ballina company Oasis Skate Park Design.

A sod-turning ceremony is pencilled in for August 11, with work expected to be complete in three to four weeks.
