Two more break-ins and cash stolen

A BREAK-IN frenzy continues in the Charleville area with thieves striking two businesses and stealing cash in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Charleville police told the Western Times that the Ergon Energy depot on Bentwell St was broken into between Monday 8pm and Tuesday 7am.

About 400m away on Parry St, a business premises was also broken into sometime in the early hours of Tuesday between 3.30 - 7am.

Charleville police senior sergeant Michael Symes said no suspects were known but an investigation has been launched.

Only two weeks ago, in the early hours of May 7, employees of the Charleville Bilby Experience arrived at work to find the back door had been smashed open, locks broken and around $1000 in donations missing.

That same day, another business on Alfred St was entered by thieves before stock was stolen from the premises.

As a result of initial investigations Charleville police cautioned a 10-year-old male for entering premises and committing an indictable offence.

Police are unsure if the break-ins are related.
