Roma business and home allegedly ransacked, CCTV cameras stolen

Unknown suspects have allegedly entered separate buildings in a span of a few days, stealing several items and removing CCTV cameras from each location in an elaborate crime spree.

Roma police allege between 9.30pm on Saturday, January 2 and 7am January 3, suspects have broken into the Maranoa Laundry located on Quintin St and stolen five sets of truck keys, batteries, tools and $50.

It is understood the alleged offenders used a pallet jack to wedge under the roller door at the rear of the premise and used it to lift the door high enough to crawl underneath.

The suspects have allegedly disconnected the CCTV camera and stolen the device.

Police have sought footage from surrounding businesses and the investigation is ongoing.

Two days later, on Tuesday January 5, officers believe the same offenders have entered a vacant dwelling on Jackson St.

Offenders allegedly used a plastic drum to climb inside a bedroom of the home, that is currently for sale.

Officers state offenders removed a ladder from the bedroom, placed it under a manhole in the hallway and unplugged a recorder and left.

Police have conducted door knock inquiries and the investigation is ongoing.
