Very annoyed at Police - Smashed XR6T
At 10pm Sunday night my XR6T was parked outside my house as I was just about to leave for work (night shift.) I was inside and heard a BANG and breaking glass and straight away knew what had happened. I ran out to see the tail lights of a white EA Falcon driving slowly away up the road. By that time a lady had run up to me telling me she had got the number plate and a good description of the guy. She said he was weaving around and just ran straight into the back of my car and kept his foot in it until the cars untangled themselves.
I reported it right away to the police and they said, sorry, you have to report it in the morning in writing to a station! I couldn't belive it. Next day I went to my local station with the rego of the offending car, and as soon as the officer typed it in he asked me what type of car was it. I said a white EA or EB falcon. Bingo! We have a winner. The officer told me the suburb of where the owner lived and said they would get onto it.
I went for a drive through the suburb (20 mins away from my house!) and saw the white Falcon parked in a driveway with the smashed front 3/4 panel taken off the car. Plus I got a look at the driver and he matched my neighbours description perfectly. So I rang the police back saying this is the guy for sure as the front end of his car is damaged and had my Lightning Stike paint all over it! OK i was told we will get onto it. In the meantime my neighbour had given her statement to the police because she saw it all unfold.
Two days later and nothing has been done.. The accident happened on Sunday night and now here Tuesday night nothing has been done by the police. They said "We will get to it in the next few days probably." I was speechless.. By the time they get around there the car will be fixed, dumped or sold and I will be up for the excess when I KNOW who did it and WHERE HE LIVES!
So annoyed at the moment, feel so helpless. Every day that goes past is just more time for the scum to get away with it... My insurers will probably get him before the police!!!!!
