Thieves drop dough as baker pur­sues

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Bran­don Livesay

THIEVES were chased from Gayn­dah’s bak­ery be­fore they man­aged to steal any­thing.

The at­tempted rob­bery took place about 10pm on Tues­day, Novem­ber 13.

Three of­fend­ers en­tered the bak­ery through the rear door and were caught in the act by baker and owner Michael Eisle.

The of­fend­ers then ran out the back door, with a char­ity jar full of do­na­tion money for Mr Eisle’s Movem­ber fundraiser.

But the thieves dropped the jar be­fore they could make their great es- cape.

“One left their jacket be­hind and one of them turned around as he was run­ning away, so Michael got a good look at him,” bak­ery owner Tanya Eisle said.

“Michael was up­stairs and came down and chased them off. “They were teenagers. “They were old enough to know bet­ter. “It feels like we’ve been in­vaded. “We shouldn’t have to pro­tect our own prop­erty.”

Gayn­dah Po­lice Sergeant Lu­cas Hamp­son said“we knowwho they are”.

“We have iden­ti­fied the three of­fend­ers,” he said.
