specialist police charge seven people in sydneys west during two day investigation

Specialist police have stormed a notorious lane in Sydney’s west in a two-day high-visibility operation to disrupt alcohol and drug related crime in the area.

Officers from the anti-bikie, highway and dog squads charged seven people and issued 26 infringements in Parramatta on Friday and Saturday for brawls, drink driving, knives in public place, and bail breaches. 

More than 1220 roadside breath tests and 24 drug tests were conducted in a laneway at the entrance to the Meriton Suites complex, with at least 125 people and 30 vehicles searched.  

Footage released by NSW Police shows officers pulling over cars, seizing cash, frisking a group of men’s pockets and dogs sniffing through vehicles.

The first arrest was made about 7pm Friday when officers spotted a 34-year-old man with an outstanding warrant for affray. He was released on bail to front court next week. 

Half an hour later, a 31-year-old woman driver a Honda Accord was stopped for a breath test on Dirrabarri Lane.

She returned a negative result, but was handed an infringement notice after officers allegedly unearthed a knife in her dashboard during a search of her car.  

About 9.40pm on the same Parramatta CBD lane, a 49-year-old man was allegedly found with a stolen driver’s licence. 

He was arrested and charged with goods in personal custody suspected being stolen and breach of bail. He was released to face court on Thursday. 

At 12.30am, a 29-year-old man allegedly blew over the limit with a reading of 0.165 during a roadside breath test.  

He was issued a Court Attendance Notice for high range drink driving to appear Wednesday.

Later that evening, police came across a group of men brawling in the same lane about 9pm. 

A 25-year-old man was handed an infringement notice for offensive conduct after he allegedly became aggressive and yelled at officers when they intervened.

Minutes later, a group of people exited a minibus on Dairrbarri Lane and a brawl allegedly broke out between two men. A 27-year-old man was charged with affray and bailed to face court next week. 

‘We have seen more incidents of anti-social behaviour in recent months and we want people to be able to feel safe and not have to worry about street-level crime in the neighbourhood,’ Parramatta commander Superintendent Julie Boon said. 

‘Parramatta is a vibrant community and operations like this put police on the front foot to prevent crimes occurring.

‘The results demonstrate a significant disruption to local crime in the area and we will continue to work in collaboration with our specialist units in an effort to decrease anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol-related violence.’

A teenage baker has revealed his secret to making perfectly crispy French fries at home every time without using a deep fryer.

‘Let’s make fries that are tastier and healthier than McDonald’s,’ Morgan claimed.

How to make Morgan Hipworth’s perfect French fries 

INGREDIENTS

Red skinned potatoes 

Olive oil

Salt

Herbs (optional)

METHOD

Preheat oven to 200C. 

Peel and cut potatoes into fries. Place fries into a pot of cold, salted water.

Bring the pot to boil, then boil for a further two minutes. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a baking tray. Season with salt and your favourite herbs.

Bake for 25 minutes at 200C or until crispy and golden all over.

Remove the tray from the oven and serve.

He started by peeling and cutting the potatoes into sticks. 

‘First up, we need to peel and cut the potatoes into fries. Add the fries to a pot with cold water and sea salt,’ Morgan explained.

Then he parboiled the fries, bringing the potatoes to boil for a further two minutes.

Parboiling potatoes in a pot of salted water will slash the roasting time in the oven and ensure the insides become really fluffy. 

He drained the potatoes and transferred them onto a baking tray.

‘Bake with olive oil, salt and your favourite herbs at 200 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes,’ he said.

‘Boom, there you have it. The perfect French fries.’

His video has since been viewed more than 4.6 million times, with hundreds amazed at how simple and easy it was to create the fast food-inspired fries at home.

‘No way are you serious these are baked fries? They look so real,’ one said.

Many who recreated the fries at home claimed they tasted just as good as McDonald’s version. 

‘I made them the way he did and they turned out really good, like actual fries,’ one said, while another wrote: ‘I just made them for dinner and they were so good.’

Some suggested roasting the potatoes with the skin on. 

‘I made them and they are super good but you can leave the skin on,’ one said.

However, others said nothing could ever beat the classic McDonald’s fries.

‘You can try and do it but nothing is better than a McDonald’s fries,’ one said, while another added: ‘No chip that is baked in a oven is better than frying it’s just a rule of life.’

off duty police officer stood down after allegedly pulling out badge and assaulted a woman

A probationary police officer who joined the force just two weeks ago has been stood down without pay after he was charged over an alleged drunken assault.

The alleged incident was captured on CCTV at a hotel in Ryde in Sydney’s north-west shortly before midnight on Wednesday night.

The footage shows the 41-year-old officer allegedly grabbing hold of and assaulting a young woman who was attempting to flee him.

He can be seen repeatedly flashing his police badge in the air as his alleged victim runs into the hotel to escape him.

Bystander Levi Minchin was walking home when he heard the woman and her female friend calling out for assistance.

‘They yelled help, so my instinct was to run over and just do whatever I could in my power, so I ran over,’ Mr Minchin told Nine News.

‘I could tell he was drunk, you could smell it.

‘He was swearing at them, telling them to get the f*** outside continuously.’

The footage shows Mr Minchin intervening and trying to reason with the officer, who continues trying to show his authority by flashing his police badge.

The alleged altercation then turned physical, with Mr Minchin managing to push the probationary constable to the ground and restrain him until police arrive.

The rookie officer was one of 192 officers who graduated from the NSW Police Academy in Goulburn on October 9.

He was one of five recruits aged over-40 and was stationed at a command in the North West Metropolitan Region.

He was charged with three counts of common assault and bailed to appear in Burwood Local Court on November 30. 

The probationary officer was also stood down without pay and ordered to give back his badge as NSW Police review his employment status.
