The rodent trap, the drugs and the covert investigation targeting the Road Knights

Police secretly raided a drug stash buried in the bush and then made it look like it was the work of a pest controller. BLAIR ENSOR reports.

Karl Dollman trudged through the bush to his secret cache of drugs.

It was early in the morning and pouring with rain so the then 75-year-old knew the chances of anyone seeing him walking through the Otatara Scenic Reserve, not far from the centre of Invercargill, were remote.

Dollman was known to Inland Revenue as a superannuant with no other taxable income. Within Southland's underworld, he was the father of a senior Road Knights gang member and a significant supplier of cannabis.

Several days earlier, police had raided the home of Dollman's daughter looking for drugs. Much to his relief, they'd missed a significant stash in her garage, which he'd collected soon after and hidden in the bush.

After deadly N.H. biker crash, thousands of out-of-state traffic notices found untouched by Massachusetts RMV

BOSTON — Tens of thousands of paper notices detailing traffic infractions that Massachusetts drivers compiled in other states have been sitting untouched in 53 bins at a state facility in Quincy, a preliminary review by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation has found.

Among them: a May 11 report of a drunken-driving violation in Connecticut accumulated by Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, a truck driver from West Springfield, Massachusetts.

Connecticut notified the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles about Zhukovskyy's incident both electronically and through a mailed notice that would have got into one of the bins, the report released Monday says. Under state law, Zhukovskyy's commercial driver's license should have been immediately terminated and his right to drive a passenger vehicle suspended.
