Melbourne [AU]: 33 Armed Robberies in 6 Mos.

“Police are offering a $50,000 reward to catch a network of gangs who have terrorised gaming venues in Melbourne’s northern suburbs in a six-month spree,” theage.com.au report. “The police believe the bandits are responsible for up to 33 armed robberies at Melbourne gaming venues since June last year, and officers have formed Taskforce Sampson to investigate the violence. Four men aged in their mid 20s were arrested in November and remain in custody after being charged with a number of serious offences including armed robbery, attempted armed robbery, common law assault and firearm offences. However Detective Superintendent Kevin Sheridan said a number of other alleged offenders were believed to be laying low in the wake of the arrests.” Who says gun control doesn’t work?
