Break-ins and property damage plagued businesses and clubs this week, with three incidents occurring overnight on Wednesday.
The Dunolly Primary School and golf club were both broken into while Maryborough’s Railway Café and Tracks Bar Gallery had three windows shattered around the same time.
The primary school was broken
into early Wednesday morning, with offender/s breaking through the two back doors of the main office but failing to steal anything.
The school’s alarm was activated at 6 am but by the time police arrived the offender/s had already left.
Goldfields Criminal Investigation Unit Detectives Senior Constable Scott De La Rue said given the proximity of the golf club and school, police believe the two incidents are connected.
“We don’t have a timeframe for when the golf club was broken into, but the offender/s forced entry and caused some minor damage. They stole some alcohol and a small amount of cash,” he said.
Anyone with information on the incidents should contact Maryborough Police on 5460-3300 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
