Watches stolen

Fifteen second-hand watches were stolen from the St Vincent de Paul op-shop in Katoomba during a break-in on Sunday morning.

About 5.20am, it is alleged that a male in dark clothes, with a hood over his head and carrying a light-coloured backpack went to the Waratah St op-shop and started kicking in the front window, said Blue Mountains Police Detective Chief Inspector Dietmar Almer.

“The male was unsuccessful, picked up a brick and used it to smash the window,” he said.

Anyone with information should contact Katoomba Police on 4782 8199 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 and quote reference number E66942787.

Walkers rescued

Two groups of lost bushwalkers required assistance from emergency services on Sunday.

Blue Mountains Police Rescue officers were sent into the Jamison Valley at Wentworth Falls to help one group of walkers who had called Triple 0.

Polair started a search, during  which they noticed a second larger group in the valley. They didn't appear in distress but the experienced crew marked their location as they had concerns they didn't have enough light to make their way out.

Two police rescue officers made their way into the valley to help the first group. Meanwhile, police rescue received intermittent 000 calls from the second group indicating they had a 19-year-old woman with an ankle injury who was unable to walk.

The police rescue officers brought both groups together and paramedics made their way into the valley and treated the woman while the rest of the group were guided out.

An Ambulance Rescue helicopter winched the female out on Monday morning and she was taken to Katoomba Hospital for further treatment.

Fire station break-in

The fire station at Bell was broken into just after midnight on July 30.

A witness driving past is alleged to have seen a white utility leave the scene.

“Police were contacted and attended the scene and discovered that entry had been gained to the fire station through side wall sheeting,” said Blue Mountains Police Detective Chief Inspector Dietmar Almer.

“CCTV imagery confirmed that a male with a torch was inside the fire station and could be seen looking for something before fleeing the scene.”

Police were obtaining CCTV footage from nearby to establish any further evidence.

“We are clearly treating this matter as serious considering it was a break in on a fire station that supports the local community in time of need,” Det Chief Insp Almer said.

Police have urged anyone with information about this matter to contact Katoomba Police Station on 4782 8199 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. ​
