Emerald police and SES search for vital evidence

EMERALD police are working hard to wrap up unsolved cases, even getting the local State Emergency Service in to help.

Police initiated a line search at Braeside Rd in an attempt to find a weapon used in the serious assault of a 40-year-old Emerald man at Braeside Rd on September 3.

Local SES members were called to assist in the search.

Emerald Criminal Investigation Branch officer-in-charge Detective Sergeant Dylan Brook said police were looking into a number of unsolved crimes in the area.

"Emerald police are re-examining a number of investigations from throughout this year," Det Sgt Brook said.

"This includes the assault of a male person on Braeside Rd."

Det Sgt Brook said the SES was brought in to help search the surrounding channel.

"As part of the investigation into the assault, we enlisted the help of the SES to do a search of the area," he said.

The weapon was not located.

Det Sgt Brook said police were also looking into a suspected arson of two cars on Park Ave in late last year.

Anyone with information relating to either crime should contact Crime Stoppers or Emerald police.
