A 56-year-old Seymour woman has been charged with several criminal damage by fire offences after she was allegedly caught in the act recently.
Two off-duty policemen saw a woman acting suspiciously near the historic wooden jail in Emily St, Seymour and upon further inspection noticed a small fire near the building.
A previous fire had been lit at the same location a week or so earlier. The woman has also been charged with lighting several other small fires around the area; two relating to incidents in April where trees had been set alight in Anzac Ave and Goulburn St.
Two trailers were recently stolen from the front yards of their owners.
One, a homemade registered grey tandem, was taken sometime between midnight and 1am on Sunday, May 6 from McKenzie St, Broadford; and a motorcycle-carrying trailer was removed from a home in Young St, Nagambie. This was taken some time between noon on Saturday, May 5 and the following Monday morning.
A car was tampered with at an address is Mallet Cres, Seymour, overnight on May 5.
The offenders forced entry to the car, which was then pushed out into the street, where it was found.
