Hoon cars seized across Casey

Two vehicles were impounded after police intercepted alleged hoon drivers in Hallam.


Two drivers dropping burnouts in Hallam in front of police officers have had their cars impounded, police say.

Casey Highway Patrol officers saw three “suspicious” vehicles on Centre Road about 10pm on Thursday 3 June.

Two of the vehicles intentionally lost traction, were intercepted and impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1038 each.

The third vehicle was also intercepted.

Two Narre Warren men, aged 18 and 19, are expected to be charged on summons with intentionally losing traction.

Later that night, a 20-year-old man had his car impounded over alleged burnouts in Cranbourne West.

Cardinia Highway Patrol police, responding to a call-out at 1.10am, found shredded tyre debris in Paramount Boulevard.

They tracked distinctive tyre markings almost two kilometres to a property on Jasa Crescent. There, a man was allegedly removing the rim from his vehicle.

His vehicle was impounded for 30 days. He’s expected to be charged with intentionally causing loss of traction.

The impounds are part of the police anti-hoon campaign Operation Achilles.
