Smashing vandals strike business

A QUICK response by security and Bundaberg Police was not enough to catch the vanishing vandals who hurled a brick through a window at Realway Real Estate overnight.

“There was shattered glass all over the office this morning,” Realway sales manager Brent Illingworth said.

He said it was not clear whether the person who broke the window was trying to break in.

“They might have tried to jump in through the window, but bolted when they heard the alarm,” Mr Illingworth said.

“But we don’t really know whether they planned to break in or not — what makes someone take a brick from a garden bed and throw it through a window?”

The two metre wide window at the Takalvan Street office was smashed just before midnight on Monday, with a security company and police arriving within minutes.

Mr Illingworth said the attack came as a shock to staff and clients.

“You just don’t expect it — we had clients coming in this morning and there was broken glass everywhere,” he said.

The vandalism came just weeks after about a dozen Bundaberg businesses had windows smashed.

Bundaberg Police are investigating the incident.
