Club’s cam­era warn­ing

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Horsham City Bowl­ing Club of­fi­cials have warned peo­ple con­tem­plat­ing crim­i­nal ac­tiv­ity at their Park Drive head­quar­ters that a com­pre­hen­sive se­cu­rity-cam­era sys­tem is in place.

Club pres­i­dent Gra­ham Mcdon­ald said the warn­ing came af­ter se­cu­rity cam­eras cap­tured footage of what ap­peared to be teenage girls tres­pass­ing on and van­dal­is­ing club greens.

Mr Mcdon­ald said footage showed three peo­ple en­ter­ing the greens from Gleed Street at 9.27pm on Satur­day night. It also showed the peo­ple pick­ing up rink mark­ers and throw­ing them onto the syn­thetic green.

Mr Mcdon­ald said the club had handed the footage to po­lice.

“When the mark­ers have landed they have cut the greens in five places. The dam­age will cost the club about $1000 to re­pair,” he said. “A tap had also been turned on and wa­ter had flowed un­til 8am the next morn­ing, flood­ing a ve­ran­dah area.”
