TOOLS and equipment were stolen from the Western Port Men’s Shed sometime over the weekend, 15-16 June. The haul included a MIG welder, biscuit joiners, drills, and a laptop computer.
Shed president Colin Prowd was at a local hardware store valuing the stolen items for insurance purposes on Wednesday. He said the offenders used a grinder to cut bolts off a door, and cut locks off a shipping container.
It’s not the first time the shed in Frankston-Flinders Road has been robbed: In a previous hit thieves took out screws and then levered up galvanised iron to get inside.
Detectives from Somerville CIU are investigating.
