About Us

wConstable Mike Stewart was faced with a Co-op store safe-cracking on his first day as Altona’s Policeman in February, 1954.  Safe-crackers had peeled off the outside door of the safe but failed to get inside, where thousands of dollars in cash and cheques were kept.  They took $19 in change and small bills from three tills in the store and scattered $25 in change on the floor around the safe.
