Dundowran crime spree

A CRIME spree at Dundowran over the weekend has rocked a number of businesses.

Police said at least five businesses in Enterprise Court were targeted between Saturday afternoon and yesterday morning.

In each instance, the offenders jemmied doors using a tool or implement, forcing their way into buildings and sheds.

They damaged doors and broke locks in order to enter the properties and then rummaged through drawers and ransacked rooms in their search for valuables.

Money and a cash tin were among the items stolen but in most cases the thieves were unsuccessful, police said.

Also over the weekend, large fences were scaled during two break-ins at Kruger Court in Urangan.

Between 9pm on Saturday and 7.30am on Sunday, someone climbed a seven-foot high security fence with barbed wire at the top and then forced a door at one of the businesses.

It is understood cash was removed from a drawer but no other items were stolen.

Also between noon on Friday and 7am Sunday, someone scaled a six-foot fence on the same street and forced a shed door open.

Cash was taken.

Hervey Bay police were also alerted to two vehicle break-ins on Minguin Street, Scarness, on Saturday night.

Between 9pm that night and 3am on Sunday, a white Toyota Corolla was broken into and between 4.30pm Saturday and 6.30am Sunday a black Toyota Landcruiser on the same street was targeted.

Cash, wallets and ID were stolen from both vehicles.

Anyone with information can telephone police or Crime Stoppers.
