Accused Car Thief Leaves Trail Of Stolen Cars, Including A Porsche

September 22nd, 2016

A 26-year-old Norlane man, already on two lots of bail for a range of offending, has been granted bail again, but this time with a $10,000 surety.

Rhys Humm, of Dove St, Norlane, appeared in Geelong Magistrates’ Court on Friday charged with a range of offences including multiple counts of car theft, possessing ammunition, handling stolen goods and criminal damage by fire.

Detective Senior Constable Jess Timms told a bail hearing that during the early hours of July 17, two cars, one a $150,000 Porsche, were stolen from a Clifton Springs address.

He said the Porsche, with Humm’s fingerprints, was found dumped at Waurn Ponds three days later.

“On August 15, police executed a search warrant on a residence at Streeton Close, Corio, where Humm was then living and located a Suzuki vehicle stolen from Pt Lonsdale on August 5,” Sen-Constable Timms said.

“Humm was charged with a range of offending and released on bail.

“On August 24, a second warrant was executed on the property, with police this time finding items identified as coming from a burglary at Bates­ford on July 29. Again Humm was charged with a range of offending and bailed.”

Sen-Constable Timms said that on August 27, a burglary occurred on a residence in Nantes St, Newtown, where a quantity of property was stolen including a Subaru station wagon and a meat cleaver.

“At 7.50am on August 30, a Melbourne resident was woken by two men banging on his front door demanding to speak to a male not known to him,” he said.

“When he told the men this, one fled and the other, identified as Humm, set fire to a straw broom in the rear of the stolen Subaru and smashed the windows with a meat cleaver.”

Sen-Constable Timms said Humm then held up the meat cleaver at the victim and threatened him but fled when he realised the victim was filming everything on his phone.

“The stolen Subaru was recovered with Humm’s fingerprints on it,” he said.

Tim Sullivan, for Humm, said his client had family support, stable accommodation and his ex-girlfriend was prepared to put up a surety for his release.

Magistrate Tim Bourke granted bail with strict conditions including a $10,000 surety. Humm will reappear on October 20.

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.
