BURGLARS used a Tootgarook family’s trailer to steal a range of household and sporting items after first turning off the power and immobilising the house’s alarm, possibly Sunday night, 30 April.
The thefts at the Plain St property were not discovered for a few days as the family was away.
Detective Senior Constable Alex Montgomery, of Somerville CIU, said it appeared the thieves waited days before the alarm was run down allowing them to break in undetected.
They loaded the trailer, registration X36917, with a ride-on mower, 125cc quad bike, women’s Giant mountain bike, and a large amount of fishing, boating, gardening and camping equipment.
Detective Montgomery said a witness saw a late model dark coloured four-wheel-drive Hilux or Navarra utility parked outside at 10.30pm on the Sunday. The offenders were not sighted.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
