Bundaberg businesses hit by crime
VANDALS hit the streets of Avoca on Saturday night, and AutoKool owners Leicia and Mike Rose were angry their business had been damaged for the second time this year.
The AutoKool front window was smashed and another business on nearby Heidke Street also had a window broken.
Mrs Rose said the damage was annoying and unnecessary.
“There’s no need for it,” Mrs Rose said.
“I think the problem is we’re right next to the pub.”
Mrs Rose said they had to repair damage caused in April this year when they were one of 18 Bundaberg businesses broken into.
Bundaberg Police Sergeant Leisa Norton said a number of break and enters took place over the weekend.
A young Caucasian man, about 14 years old, with “surfie-type” hair, tanned skin, and no shirt was seen about 6.30pm Sunday night leaving a Thabeban Street property where a back window was smashed.
A Caucasian man was also seen at the scene of a reported break-in at the BP service station, on Crofton and Barolin streets, at 2am Monday.
Property was stolen from a private residence in Norville, and there was graffiti and an attempted break-in at a Targo Street business on Sunday night.
Anyone with information should phone Bundaberg Police on 4153 9111.
