Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

MILES lo­cals were fu­ri­ous to wake on Satur­day morn­ing to find Miles Golf Club had been bro­ken into overnight. But the in­ci­dent gave po­lice the ev­i­dence they needed to bring a series of break-and-en­ters in town to an end.

A search war­rant ex­e­cuted on a Miles res­i­dence on Sun­day un­cov­ered liquor as well as fur­ni­ture, a tele­vi­sion and other stolen goods taken from premises since Fe­bru­ary, amount­ing to $1000 in to­tal value.

Miles po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Sergeant Ben Wilt­shire said the oc­cu­pants of the house, a 25-year-old Miles man, a 19-year-old Miles man and a 19-year-old Bar­cal­dine man were charged with nine break and en­ter of­fences.

“Three men have been charged with nine charges of break and en­ters (oc­cur­ring) over the last cou­ple of months,” Sgt Wilt­shire said.

“The men stole a large amount of liquor from the golf club and caused a fair bit of dam­age, (the ac­cused) kicked in a wall, dam­aged a cash reg­is­ter and a win­dow and locks on cup­boards in the cold room.”

Two of the men will front Chin­chilla Mag­is­trates Court on June 9, while the third will ap­pear on June 25.
