Police target anti-social behaviour at Tea Gardens

The Port Stephens Hunter Police District is targeting anti-social behaviour at Tea Gardens after a number of complaints from residents.

Over the past couple of months people in the area have been harassed by a group of males riding the streets on their bicycles late at night, and conducting themselves in an offensive and affronting manner.

Residents living on Shoreline Drive have complained the group have been targeting homes on that street by using offensive language, harassing dogs causing them to bark excessively, throwing projectiles upon roofs, and igniting fireworks in a near-by reserve.

Some time back a number of water meters connected to private residents were also intentionally damaged causing water to escape onto these properties and incurring a substantial repair bill.

Officers are appealing for information to assist in identifying the males in the above image, who are believed to be involved.

One of the males has a bicycle that has a “boom box” (music equipment) attached to the handle bars and plays music through the device whilst riding around.

Police are asking anyone who may be able assist with their inquiries to call Raymond Terrace Police Station on 4983 7599 – you can remain anonymous.
