Police launch appeal following Rutherford car bombing


Criminal Group Squad detectives are appealing for public assistance after a car bombing in Rutherford earlier this year.

About 8.30pm on Thursday 27 October, emergency services were called to a home on Avery Street following reports of a loud explosion on the street.

Occupants of the premises attempted to extinguish a small fire at the rear of a Chrysler sedan parked outside.

Crews from Fire and Rescue NSW attended a short time later and put out the blaze.

The car was seized for forensic examination.

Officers from Port Stephens-Hunter Police District established a crime scene, before detectives attached to the State Crime Command’s Criminal Groups Squad began an investigation under Strike Force Ucles.

It’s believed numerous people involved have links to outlaw motorcycle groups (OMCG).

As investigations continue, police have released images of the vehicle as they continue to appeal for anyone with information to come forward.

Contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or

Information is treated in strict confidence.
