Sport club ransacked
GATTON: A GATTON sporting club has described a recent break-in as “a kick in the guts”.
Sometime between January 6 and 7, thieves allegedly forced their way into the Gatton Redbacks Soccer Club’s premises on Treatment Plant Rd.
Club president Adam Halstead said while the thieves made off with little of value, the damage they caused had cost the club time and money it couldn’t afford.
“It’s more so just the mess they made rather than anything,” Mr Halstead said.
“They’ve just really inconvenienced us - they’ve broken windows, smashed our fridges, pulled cupboard doors off the cupboard.”
The perpetrators were determined to gain access to the club, cutting through metal bars with what Mr Halstead suspects was a portable angle-grinder.
“There’s not a lot we can really do, if they want to get in, they’re going to get in,” he said.
Anyone with information should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police Link on 131 444.
