POLICE who intercepted a silver VW van at Tootgarook last week had no idea it contained $20,000 in goods allegedly stolen from holiday homes at the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula.
Detectives called to the scene arrested a 42-year-old Frankston South woman and a 49-year-old Capel Sound man, 5.40am, Thursday 21 October.
Detective Acting Sergeant Steve Reidy, of Somerville CIU, said the alleged burglaries had been committed from July to October.
The woman was charged with burglary, handling stolen goods, possessing the proceeds of crime, theft, committing an indictable offence while on bail, and breaching bail conditions. She was remanded in custody to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 12 November.
Her accomplice was charged with handling stolen goods and possessing the proceeds of crime. He was bailed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court in March.
