Costly ‘dance’ on car bonnets

PHIL House cannot help but wonder what someone would gain from jumping on car bonnets in the middle of the night.

The service manager at Jack Casey Motor Centre in Hervey Bay arrived at work yesterday to find two of the display cars wrecked.

“We’ve got some people who wanted to do a bit of a dance, it looks like,” Mr House said. “It’s just stupidity really.”

Police believe damage to two glass panels at nearby The Gas Cylinder was a related incident.

Thrifty car rental was broken into the same night, with the offenders kicking their way into an office on the premises.

Manager Kristy Rutherford said the would-be thieves failed to steal anything, despite the presence of a mobile phone, an iPod and charity boxes.

“They’ve kicked the front door in and looked for cash and keys to the cars, which we don’t keep on the premises,” Ms Rutherford said. “They haven’t touched any of the cars.”
