Burglars active


BURGLARS forced a rear window at a Rosebud rental property and stole jewellery, between 1-9 March. Taken from the Eighth Avenue property was a chain, two rings, costume jewellery and a jewellery box, valued at $650.

A security door, flywire door and a dishwasher were stolen from a house under construction in Bittern, overnight Friday 8 March.

A $4800 yellow kayak was stolen from a Mt Martha house that had earlier been gutted by fire. Detectives said burglars forced a garage door at the Spencer Street house that had been unoccupied for several weeks.

Offenders unsuccessfully used a jemmy bar to force open the front door of a Tyabb house before smashing a window to get inside, 5am, Wednesday 13 March. They then allegedly stole keys to two cars at the Railway Road property.

The occupants awoke to find the front door open and two men driving off in their 2012 Mazda BT50 utility, valued at $18,000. Their other car, a Toyota Corolla, had been moved out of the carport, possibly to steal later.
