Gippsland police deal with a foreshore fire and road incidents

Police are appealing for witnesses to a couple of small fires on the Loch Sport foreshore on Friday afternoon.

They believe two offenders tried to light the fires in grass behind the carnival on Lake Street at around 3pm.

Police would particularly like to speak to a witness on a boat who alerted carnival staff.

Anyone with information should contact LSC Paul Johnston at Loch Sport Police Station on 5146 0556 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police and Highway Patrol officers were out on Gippsland roads over Easter as part of Operation Nexus, in one case putting a drug-affected driver off the road.

They clocked a 46 year old male driver doing 123 km/h in a 100 zone at Rosedale, after which he returned a positive drug test.

The driver also had two outstanding warrants for arrest.

And on Saturday in Sale, a 47 year old female driver returned a positive breath test but returned a negative evidentiary breath test at the station.

Police found she was in possession of a drug of dependence and received a drug diversion notice.

Police want to hear from witnesses to a road rage incident and collision at around 2.30pm Sunday on Tyers Road, Stratford.

Anyone with information or footage is being urged to contact the Sale Police on 5142 2200 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Those incidents came after two motorcycle deaths just prior to the weekend.

A man died in a collision on the Thomson Dam Access Road on Thursday, then another bike rider died the same day in a fatal collision at Piedmont, near Noojee.
