What a joke, why didn't he harm the cops? They caught him flat footed and scared the dickins out of him. Yes he can run and is in good shape.
Not smart though, just lucky and sneaky.
As to taking the food from the Adopt-A-Cabins, not a crime as the food is left for any one to take. Breaking into the Ballarat Store and stealing a lot of items is a crime. Running from the cops is a crime. The Bandit is lucky the cops that have confronted him are professionals. I know some that would have shot him.
Unfortunately, Law Enforcement is limited to the time they can spend on this criminal by manpower needs elsewhere and the almighty buck.
Also most of the information posted here is speculation as Law Enforcement is not very forth coming with details. Which is proper police procedure.
