$4000 theft from kiosk

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PO­LICE and de­tec­tives from the Whit­sun­day Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch (CIB) are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a theft from the Abell Point Ma­rina Kiosk and Cafe, dur­ing which goods and cash to the value of about $4000 were re­moved.

Kiosk owner Dave Pad­don said he was alerted to the break-in by se­cu­rity guards at about 12.30am last Fri­day.

He said he ar­rived at the premises in the ma­rina’s north vil­lage, to find the glass in the slid­ing door had been smashed with a large rock.

“And then, they dan­ger­ously got through what was jagged glass, to get in,” he said.

“I don’t know how they got through with­out cut­ting them­selves and nor do po­lice.”

Mr Pad­don said the thief or thieves took food, drinks, cash from the till and cig­a­rettes to the value of about $4000.

Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Barry Haran con­firmed that CCTV footage from around the same time, showed a tall, dark-haired man in his 20’s look­ing through the stor­age ar­eas and try­ing to open them.

Act Sgt Haran said po­lice were keen to in­ter­view this man.
