Bounty on van­dals


Stirling Times - - FRONT PAGE - Kristie Lim

A SCARBOROUGH bar owner is of­fer­ing a $5000 bar card to any­one who can help iden­tify a per­son who at­tempted to steal a cig­a­rette vend­ing ma­chine last month.

Oceans 6019 owner An­thony Hil­ton told the Stir­ling Times it cost him $4000 to fix the dam­age caused to the al­fresco area in the overnight bur­glary, dur­ing which thieves also stole elec­tronic equip­ment.

“There was a stolen UberEats iPad, the cig­a­rette vend­ing ma­chine needed re­plac­ing, a bro­ken CCTV cam­era, bro­ken door frame and dam­age to a vin­tage Hawai­ian long board, which he tried to steal but couldn't get it out of the premises,” he said.

“We have up­graded se­cu­rity to the area in ques­tion and re­in­forced the roof with steel mesh.

“We have CCTV footage of the per­pe­tra­tor and are of­fer­ing a $5000 bar card for his con­vic­tion.”

Scarborough Po­lice of­fi­cer-in­charge Glenn Dowd­ing said po­lice needed as­sis­tance to iden­tify two peo­ple who broke into the premises be­tween 10pm and 8.30am on Septem­ber 18 and 19.

“They cut a hole in the ex­ter­nal canopy, broke through the doors, cleared the walk­way and got in,” he said.

“Any­one who knows them should con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or their lo­cal po­lice.”
