Police have seized a “significant amount” of allegedly stolen property during raids on homes in the Huon Valley, including power tools, imported wine and household electrical items.

The searches in Lymington and Grove this week led to the arrests of two men for multiple offences, police said.


A 38-year-old from Lymington is facing charges of home burglary, unlawful possession, breach of bail, drug and fraud offences.

He was arrested following a string of crimes in the Cygnet area.

A 32-year-old man from Grove has been charged with two counts each of home burglary and stealing, unlawful possession of property, drug, firearm and traffic offences.

Inspector Colin Riley said the successful operation was a “prime example” of how local communities can support police to catch offenders.

“Police thank members of the community who provided information which assisted in identifying and locating these offenders,” he said.

“Anyone who sees illegal, unlawful or suspicious behaviour can report it to police on 131 444 or to Crime Stoppers Tasmania.”


The 38-year-old man has been remanded by the magistrate to reappear before the court in mid-July, while the 32-year-old man has been bailed to appear before the court on August 28.
