Telltale signs of a
drug lab near you
Last week ACT Policing discovered a
clandestine laboratory in Hume allegedly used
to manufacture illicit drugs.
Clandestine laboratories are by definition
secret, hidden and used for the production of
illicit drugs such as methamphetamine, heroin
The types of laboratories can vary, from
elaborate set-ups for large scale production to
small laboratories that are often used once then
It is important to know the signs that a
clandestine laboratory might be operating in
your neighbourhood and report information to
Those signs include:
persistent chemical smells;
containers in rubbish;
pool-cleaning equipment around a house
with no swimming pool;
excessive chemical containers for premises;
suspicious run-off in drains.
Drug manufacturing poses a significant risk
to the community and can occur in a variety of
locations including houses, business
premises, cars, motels and rural properties.
Often the chemicals being used in the drug
manufacturing can be extremely volatile and
Detective Sergeant Shane Scott said for
Canberrans to be aware of indicating factors
to suspicious activity is invaluable to ACT
"We encourage neighbours to get to know
each other," Detective Sergeant Scott said.
"If there is a lack of occupancy in the home,
the occupants remain very secretive or people
frequent the premise intermittently, these may
be signs that the house is being used for
something other than a home.
"By keeping an eye out, neighbours can
assist police in detecting these properties and
getting drugs off our streets.
"If things don't seem right, contact Crime
Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be
When police and community work together
the result is a safer environment for everyone.

Household provides community and friendship
L'arche Genesaret housemates in Canberra.

When Anne Walsh began as a member
of L'arche Genesaret in Canberra at
just 18 years old, Australia's
examination of the rights for those
living with a disability was nascent.
Ms Walsh, now 50, has spent her
adult life as a L'arche member
enjoying a unique community of
people with and without intellectual
disability who live under the one roof.
L'arche began in Canberra in 1978
as the first Australian community of its
kind, but the international organisation
which spans 40 countries celebrates its
50th jubilee this year.
L'arche ACT community leader
Valerie Spencer said 13 adults with
developmental disability were
supported in three households in the
Woden Valley and lived out a
philosophy that "quashed the dynamic
of the carer and the cared for".
"What we do is really provide
community and a strong sense of
mutual relationships and friendships,''
she said. "The philosophy of being
with people is about empowering them
to live fulfilled lives and through that
they can determine what they can and
Ms Walsh has represented Australia
as a Paralympian in Madrid in 1992
and took home a silver medal from the
first World Championships for the
Intellectually Disabled in Sweden in
1989. But being chosen to represent
L'arche Australia at the worldwide
celebrations in France later this year
will be just as unforgettable.
"I am the only member from
Australia going and I feel very
honoured," she said.
The members of L'arche share in
household chores, make a big deal of
each other's birthdays and hang out
together when they're not working.
Danny Sharpe just celebrated his
30th year living in L'arche and said he
cherished these activities and the
friendships he had formed.
"It's a good place," he said. "We go
to the movies, go out for picnics and
on Friday nights we all go bowling."
Ms Spencer said the organisation
hadn't had the resources to take on
new members for the past decade but
she hoped the introduction of the
National Disability Insurance Scheme
would change that.
POLICE WARNING AS THEFTS
FROM VEHICLES DOUBLE
Theft from motor vehicles parked in driveways
and along residential streets in Tuggeranong has
"significantly jumped", to double the amount
recorded at this time last year. The streets of
Tuggeranong were met with an increased police
presence over the weekend to target the growing
number of thefts, although residents can avoid
becoming victims of the opportunistic crime by
removing valuables from their cars, or parking
their cars further up the driveway, or behind a
gate, Acting Superintendent South District,
Joanne Cameron, said. "It's all about
opportunity. If you don't create the opportunity
for the crime, you won't be the victim of crime,"
