Footy club bur­gled

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A bur­glary at an Ex­mouth foot­ball club on Sun­day, May 7, is a “dis­ap­point­ing” re­sult for the com­mu­nity, say lo­cal po­lice, who are call­ing on the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance to solve it.

Of­fend­ers al­legedly en­tered the Ex­mouth Ea­gles Foot­ball Club build­ing be­tween 4am and 6am and stole $500 in cash and some al­co­hol.

Ex­mouth po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Sergeant Paul World said the money was an im­por­tant as­set for the club.

“It’s not a huge amount but it was team money — money that would go to­wards the team for do­ing events and fundrais­ers,” he said.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing CCTV footage from an ad­ja­cent area.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion about the in­ci­dent, call Ex­mouth po­lice on 9947 8700.
