Burglar flees, leaving partner behind

By Jessica Anstice

A man has allegedly fled a Pakenham home leaving his partner-in-crime behind during a burglary on Thursday.

The Greenhills Road home-owner returned from work for a morning tea break at about 10.30am and caught the two men in action.

As the victim pulled up at his house, he claims he saw one man closing the front gate while the other took off with his partner’s ute which was filled with personal items from inside the home.

The back of the ute was packed with a TV, Playstation, controllers, jewellery, a substantial amount of power tools and more.

The victim confronted the man who was left behind by asking him “who are you?” and “what are you doing at my house?”

“I didn’t think to pull my car in front of the ute as it was leaving the driveway,” the victim recalled.

“Most importantly something that wasn’t mine was taken.”

The stolen vehicle is a black Holden 2010 VE two door ute with a registration plate that reads ‘YVR502’.
