Police seize notorious BMW



? POLICE drove away with Dennis Vanjak's much written about black BMW yesterday, and it was not because of parking fines.

Mr Vanjak and his black BMW first hit the news in The Morning Bulletin on July 22 last year when he accumulated $6000 in parking fines.

Last week he was in court and given four months to pay $3749 or spend 57 days in jail as a result of the outstanding fines.

Sergeant Shaun Glanville of the Rockhampton Police Inquiry Of- fice said yesterday they acted on an outstanding warrant for $4898.35 from an unrelated con- viction.

At 8.45am yesterday Mr Vanjak surrendered his BMW's keys to Sergeant Glanville.

"He was quite OK about it, he understood what we were there for,'' Sergeant Glanville said.

The car was then driven to the police station and parked among the police cars.

"It looked pretty good there, the black BMW parked between two police vehicles,'' Sergeant Glan- ville said.
