Break-ins mar Flinders holidays

Share

HOLIDAY home owners in the Flinders area are being advised to check for lost property after up to six homes and six cars were broken into Wednesday night. One of the cars was stolen but later recovered.

Rosebud detectives arrested and charged a Hastings man, 34, with burglary and theft on Friday. He was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 9 December. Another man is believed to be involved but he had not been apprehended when The News went to press.

Detectives said absentee owners may not even be aware their homes had been raided. Items known to have been stolen include a mountain bike, wallet with credit cards, sunglasses and coins, but a full list is hard to compile until the exact number of break-ins is known.

Anyone with information is asked to call Rosebud CIU on 5986 0444 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
