The trove contained currency, silver bullion and thousands of pieces of gold and silver. Police urge people to view the list of engravings on Facebook on the NSW Police Force and Victoria Police pages. BABYURNCHARGE MELBOURNE: A second person has been charged over the theft of an urn containing the ashes of a baby girl from a Melbourne home. Police charged a St Kilda woman, 38, with burglary, theft and four counts of deception yesterday relating to the theft of the ashes of a four-month-old girl from an East Brighton home earlier this month. A Heidelberg man, 26, was charged over the burglary last week. ROOFSRIPPEDOFF BRISBANE: A storm, with winds strong enough to rip the roofs from houses has battered Queenslands Sunshine Coast, leaving a trail of destruction. Wind gusts estimated at up to 125km/h mauled Cooroy on the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Several roads have been closed with landslips. Drink-drive school run The driver of the grey car allegedly blew more than six times the legal limit, while she had her baby on board MELBOURNE: A mum who allegedly blew six times the legal limit after driving to pick up her kids from school with her infant daughter in the car was lucky not to have injured anyone, police say. The 34-year-old was picking up her son and daughter from a primary school in Melbournes outer east on Monday afternoon when she hit another car. Leading Senior Constable David Hewatt said she had parked her car outside Berwick Lodge Primary School but it then rolled forward and hit another mothers car. The Narre Warren woman was taken to Endeavour Hills police station where she allegedly recorded a reading of .304, more than six times the legal blood alcohol limit. Sen-Constable Hewatt said at the end of a school day it was lucky no one was hurt. Its obviously extremely dangerous for the safety of especially the kids leaving the school, being a primary school and there were other people, parents and others, he said. The woman was charged with two counts of drink driving and one of reckless conduct endangering serious injury. She is due to appear in Dandenong Magistrates Court this month. Teen rants probed Anna Bligh MACKAY: Queensland Labor has refused to say if party officials did an internet search on a teenage election candidate whose homophobic rants have exposed the party to ridicule. Labors Southern Downs candidate, Peter Watson, 19, was expelled from the Labor Party yesterday after standing by racist and anti-homosexual comments he posted on an internet blog five years ago. Premier Anna Bligh is furious he slipped through the partys screening procedures. Im certainly very, very angry about this mans endorsement, Ms Bligh said yesterday in Mackay. She said Mr Watson had been determined to run for the ALP, had hidden his views and deliberately embarrassed the party. His comments indicate that he was infiltrating what he called the enemy, she said. This guy is not a run-of-the-mill this is an extremist. An ALP spokeswoman would not say whether the party had done a Google search on Mr Watson. The Liberal National Party (LNP) argues that was all it would have taken to discover Mr Watsons views. LNP deputy leader Tim Nicholls said the ALP had ample to time to check on Mr Watson. He had been an ALP member for four years. From the outside, their preselection program looks like a circus, Mr Nicholls said. Mr Watson reportedly made the homophobic posts in 2007 under the name Peter Watson. One of his posts said: Homosexuality and paedophilia go hand in hand with each other. To deal with one you must deal with the other in order to wipe them from society. Asylum seeker boat CANBERRA: A boat carrying more than 140 suspected asylum seekers has arrived in Australian waters. HMAS Ararat intercepted the vessel north of Christmas Island on Monday night. Initial indications suggest there were 143 passengers and four crew on board, Home Affairs Minister Jason Clare said in a statement. The passengers will be transferred to Christmas Island for security, health and identity checks.
