Robbers steal club’s charity tin


BURGLARS who stole a large quantity of alcohol from Mornington Golf Course last week also made off with a tin containing members’ bushfire donations.

Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said the two men “did lots of damage” smashing a window to gain entry to the club on Tallis Drive after walking from the car park, 1.38am, Tuesday 21 January. They also smashed a window to the pro-shop.

Staff on Tuesday were tallying details of stock lost in the raid which included spirits and pre-mixed drinks. The donations tin contained about $400.

CCTV showed one of the men wearing a dark-coloured hoodie, jeans and skate shoes. The other was wearing a dark-coloured windcheater with a logo on the front, cargo pants and Nike shoes. He had short dark hair and a trimmed beard.

Detective Majstorovic said police were analysing DNA evidence found at the scene in an effort to identify the offenders.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at
