Stratford man’s car impounded again

A 19-YEAR-old Stratford man has now had his car impounded for the third time in two months when he was caught driving without a licence in Maffra.

Stratford police impounded the Ford ute after the man was seen driving in Little Johnson St on Saturday afternoon.

Stratford police had previously impounded his unregistered Mitsubishi four-wheel drive in Stratford last month and Wellington Highway Patrol impounded his unregistered Holden sedan in Sale after it was involved in a collision earlier this month.

The man is expected to be charged on summons for numerous offences including unlicensed driving, using an unregistered vehicle and displaying false number plates.

STRATFORD police are seeking help after reports of a vehicle hooning around Stratford about 10.30pm Friday night.

A short time later, Stratford police detected a vehicle travelling at 157 kilometres per hour on the Maffra-Stratford Rd, but were unable to intercept the vehicle.

Shortly after, a vehicle is believed to have lost control at the Maffra-Sale Rd roundabout in Maffra, but left the scene before police arrived.

It is not clear if the three incidents are related.

Anyone with information should phone Stratford police on 5145 6404 or the police assistance line on 131 444.
