Torquay Man Charged With Stealing Mail & Creating False Accounts

September 22nd, 2016

A Torquay man charged with stealing mail and other people’s ID to allegedly create false bank accounts has been refused bail.

 

Zac Warren, 28, appeared in Geelong Magistrates’ Court on Thursday facing a number of charges including theft, attempted deception and committing an indictable offence while on bail.

Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Kerrie Moroney said that, on August 21, Mr Warren had been arrested and charged with theft of a $299 drill from Bunnings in Torquay and was later bailed.

She said that on September 21, police investigating a number of thefts and deceptions went to a Zeally Bay Rd residence where they spoke with a male who told them Mr Warren had been staying there.

“During a search of Warren’s room police found numerous items of stolen mail and identification belonging to other people,” she said.

“It is believed Warren was using those items to create false IDs in order to open several false bank accounts.”

Sen-Constable Moroney said some of the mail was identified as having been stolen on September 16 and contained three cheques, two of which Warren had tried to cash using a stolen ID.

“Those cheques totalled $1368,” she said. “The third cheque, for $45,067.28, was banked into an ANZ account on September 18 and a receipt for this amount was also found during the search.”

The prosecutor said police suspected this ANZ bank account was a false account made by Mr Warren.

“Investigations are continuing and many more charges are expected to be laid,” she said.

Mr Warren was refused bail and remanded in custody for further mention on October 3.

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.
