  • 12 Mar 1941, INTERNEE SHOT AT. DASH FROM CAMP AT BROADMEADOWS
    Four shots were fired by a military guard at Broadmeadows camp at 1.30 a.m. today in an attempt to stop an escaping German internee as he fled into a paddock. He managed to get away in the darkness and a hunt by soldiers nnd mobile police units was continued throughout the night.
    The escapee is Erich August Fritz Ventur, and an official description of him is: — Age, 32 years; 5ft, 9in., medium build, grey-brown eyes, dark hair and complexion, thick lips, over hanging eyebrows and a broad flat nose which looks as though it had been broken. He is believed to be wearing light colored summer weight khaki trousers and a brown sweater or grey sports trousers and a blue blazer.
    Later in the morning and during the afternoon detectives raided several houses where it is thought Ventur might be harbored.
    Another German was seized by a sentry when Ventur got away, but it is doubtful whether he had any knowledge of Ventur's plan to escape or intended to do so himself.
    Lodged Appeal
    Ventur was one of several Germans who had been transferred temporarily to Broadmeadows from an internment camp in the Goulburn Valley to await the hearing of appeals lodged by them against their detention.
    Ventur appealed before the appeal tribunal yesterday and was taken back to Broadmeadows. He was sleeping in a dormitory building. At 1.30 a.m. Ventur and one of his companions asked to be allowed to leave the building for a few minutes and they were taken outside by an orderly and a sentry.
    Both men were wearing pyjamas. As soon as they saw an opportunity to get away Ventur bolted, but the other man did not run and was held by the orderly. The sentry fired a shot at Ventur as he dodged round the end of the building, and three more shots to rouse the other guards.
    When the guard raced to the back of the dormitory Ventur doubled back across the main driveway into the camp and while screened by other buildings disappeared in the darkness into a paddock.
    He had prepared for the escape by wearing khaki trousers and a sweater under his pyjamas, and his request to be taken outside was obviously only a pretext.
    As he was running away Ventur shed his pyjama coat in the camp and the trousers in the paddock.
    Trousers Missing
    When his belongings were searched a pair of grey sports trousers and a blazer that he had brought to Broadmeadows with him were missing, and it is assumed that he was wearing them under the khaki trousers and sweater he had on when he was last seen.
    Immediately Ventur's disappearance was reported, a general broadcast was made from headquarters by radio and land line to all police stations and mobile units. Every car seen on roads for miles round the camp was stopped and searched, but no trace of Ventur was found. A woman and girl in a small grey-
    green car called at the camp yesterday and collected a model boat that the prisoner had made for the girl. Efforts are being made to trace those people in case a message relating to Ventur's intention to escape was hidden in the boat.
    Came Here In 1935
    Ventur, a teacher of languages, was born in Berlin, and arrived in Australia in 1935. He disembarked at Adelaide. Before his internment, he lived in St. Kilda Road, and had business premises in Collins Street, city.
    Detective-Sergeant McGufffe, of the headquarters C.I.B. Division, has been detailed to take charge of the search for Ventur. He was appointed to co-ordinate police and military activities in the hunt for three German internees who escnped at Rushworth recently, and who were captured across the Murray at Echuca after they had been at liberty for a week.17
  • 13 Mar 1941, AGAIN IN CUSTODY
    THE MOST REGENT snapshot of Erich Ventur, the German escapee, who was recaptured late this afternoon. The picture was taken not long before his internment while he was on a hiking trip.
    ESCAPEE CAUGHT IN PRESTON
    Erich August Ventur, 32, the German who escaped from Broadmeadows Camp about 2 a.m. yesterday, was captured late this afternoon by a police wireless
    patrol crew in a house in South Street, Preston.
    He was immediately taken to the Victoria Barracks.
    Ventur was asleep in a house in which were several other people.
    REPORTER EARLIER
    Earlier, a barber in Russell Street, Essendon, reported to the police that at 12.30 p.m. yesterday he shaved the escapee.
    A man camped on Merri Creek, near Mahoney's Road, Campbellfield, had also reported that Ventur, dressed in khaki, asked him for food.
    Detective-Sergeant McGuffle, who was in charge of the search, said to day that there was no association between the escape and Ventur's gift of a model boat to a little girl who called at Broadmeadows Camp with a woman in a car on Tuesday. The woman is the wife of a solicitor who advised Ventur in his appeal against continuation of his detention and the child is her daughter, for whom Ventur made the boat as a gesture of gratitude. It was at first thought that the boat might have concealed a message relating to the German's plan to escape, but the police say there is no reason to suspect this.
    Ventur dodged four bullets and disappeared in the darkness arfer getting away from the camp about 2 a.m. yesterday wearing pyjamas over his khaki trousers and a sweater. He dropped his pyjamas in a paddock adjoining the camp and fled toward Campbellfield.18
  • 15 Mar 1941, Military Action Against Escapees
    Military authorities are considering what action should be taken against Erich Ventur, the escaped German internee who was recaptured in a house in Preston on Thursday.
    Southern Army Command Head quarters said today that Ventur had refused to say how he obtained the extra clothing he had when recaptured.
    If no civil prosecution is launched, he will be dealt with by military authorities for having escaped from an internment camp — an offence for which the maximum penalty is 28 days' close detention.
    Camp authorities also will take action against three other internees who escaped last month and were recaptured near Echuca, when they are returned to internment after a gaol term now being served in default of a fine for having assaulted two military guards.19

  • 27 Nov 1911, MACKAY POLICE COURT. (Before the Police Magistrate, Mr. B. C. Macgroarty.) SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25.
    ALLEGED STEALING. On Saturday, William James Hetherington appeared charged with on the 24th inst., stealing the sum of £2, the property of one Victor Pettersen.
    Sergeant Sargent prosecuted.
    Constable Gample deposed that about 11 o'clock the previous evening a report was made to him in consequence of when he, accompanied by Constable Gannon, went aboard the tender Brinawarr. He had a conversation with Captain Pettersen, who told him something. He then saw the accused in a cabin on the boat. He said to the accused. "What is your name?" Accused replied, "Hetherington." Witness pointed to a cupboard in the cabin and said to the accused 'That cupboard has been broken open and some money taken away do you know anything about it?'' Accused replied "No." Witness then showed him a broken cashbox and said to him "Did you break that open?" Accused replied "No." (Cash box produced for identification.) Witness said "I am quite satisfied that you did ; roll up all your things." Accused did so. While rolling them up witness searched them and also searched the accused. He
    found two two-shilling pieces. One was in a pocket of his coat and the other florin in a pocket of the trousers he was wearing. They left the ship and went on to the street. Witness there said to the accused "What have you done with all the other money?" Accused replied "It's in the galley." Witness said "Go and get it then," and accused took them back on to the Brinawarr and into the cook's galley. From underneath a bag on the floor amongst some ashes accused took out half a sovereign and thirty shillings in silver, and handed the money to witness. Witness said "Is this the money that you took out of the cupboard yesterday?" Accused replied "Yes." Witness then arrested the accused and on charging him at the watch house he made no reply. (Half sovereign and thirty shillings in silver tendered.)
    Evidence was also given by Constable Gannon, who corroborated the previous witness, and also by Victor Petterson as to finding the cupboard broken open, and the money in question missing.
