– Police are investigating the theft of five antique guns from an RSL club last month.
Detectives who viewed CCTV footage believe three men staked out the club a week before smashing their way in and taking the guns.
Senior Constable Susanna Hughes said the burglary at Mentone RSL on Palermo Street was premeditated.
“They knew exactly what they wanted as they took a cordless angle grinder to cut through the ties holding the guns on display,” she said.
Police believe a large bluestone brick was used to break into the club at about 4am on April 15th. The thieves then smashed a glass cabinet to steal the guns.
Senior Constable Hughes said the guns had been made inoperable before being put on display.
The three men are described as being Southern European. Two are believed to be in their mid-20s to early-30s.
The third is believed to be in his early 20s and has a distinctive undercut with longer hair on top.
Police believe the men were driving a dark-coloured, late model Ford with a rear spoiler, probably an XR6.

Three women who punched another woman and tried to steal her mobile phone and handbag are being hunted by police.
The women approached their victim from behind and asked to use her phone.
Police said that when she refused, two of them assaulted her.
The incident happened in Park Street, St Kilda West, at 8:25pm on March 24th.
After the victim screamed for help, the women ran down Mary Street towards the beach.
They are described as African, in their late teens to early 20s, with braided hair.
One woman was about 175cm, thin build and wearing a tight red or pink dress and heels.
Another was about 175cm, of thin build and wearing all black clothing.

A man is being sought by police after exposing himself to two groups of schoolgirls in separate incidents in the Geelong suburb of Hamlyn Heights.
The first incident happened after he exposed himself while standing at a bus stop on March 19th.
The girls were walking along Vines Road, near Gladstone Street, when they noticed the man about 9am.
The same man then exposed himself to two more schoolgirls while standing inside the bus shelter on Vines Road, opposite June Avenue, about 8:30am on April 23rd.
The man is described as Caucasian, 175cm, in his 40s, medium build, pot-belly, greying hair and acne.
During the first incident the alleged offender was wearing a light-grey jumper, black pants and dress shoes.
In the second incident, he was wearing khaki chino pants, a dark jumper and sunglasses.

Police are looking for a gang armed with a gun and an axe, believed responsible for an aggravated burglary in Footscray.
The gang forced its way into a Moore Street home at 11:15am on March 30th and used the weapons to threaten the four people inside the house – Jon Kaila


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
