Campaspe News - - FRONT PAGE - By KIM­BER­LEY PRICE

LO­CAL busi­ness­man Paul Evans and his team lost items worth tens of thou­sands of dol­lars in the early hours of Septem­ber 24. And they still don’t have any an­swers. Thieves broke into Paul Evans Weld­ing in Lowrie St by forc­ing a door and stole a Mazda sin­gle cab ute and as­sorted tools up to the value of $25,000. The bur­glars also cut into and dam­aged a side fence for more ac­cess to the prop­erty.

For Paul Evans, the theft has caused much dis­tress for him­self and his busi­ness. ‘‘It’s re­ally dis­ap­point­ing,’’ he said. ‘‘When you’re try­ing to get ahead with your busi­ness and some­thing like this hap­pens to you — it’s just heart­break­ing.’’

Mr Evans’ burnt out ute was found by po­lice in Kyabram a short time later.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glar­ies is asked to call Rochester po­lice on 5484 1100, Echuca po­lice on 5483 1500 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
