Robber flees with rifles and shotguns
INFORMATION is wanted on a man who broke into a gun safe and fled with four firearms after being disturbed by the homeowner.
Several police units attended an address on George St in New Norfolk about 5am yesterday after a woman reported a man breaking into the gun safe in her shed.
Inspector Philippa Burke last night said the two rifles and two shotguns were registered and no ammunition was stolen.
“Anyone who noticed anyone acting suspiciously in the New Norfolk area in the early hours of this morning or who has information that could assist the police investigation is urged to come forward,” she said. “This is a serious matter and we believe there are members of the community who either know the people responsible, or who may have been offered the stolen firearms.”
Information can be provided to Bridgewater Police on 131 444 or to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
