1. This is living!

ACT Policing has released images of a burglary which occurred at the BCF store in Fyshwick on Thursday (September 2).

About 11.25pm, offenders entered the store and escaped with a number of stolen items including Boat Fish Finder GPSs, Waeco fridges, sleeping bags and various reels and rods.

Police believe five males were involved in the burglary. All men were believed to be wearing gloves and hoods to cover their faces.

One of the men was wearing a grey hooded top with a picture on the front, black tracksuit pants withy three white stripes down the side, white shoes and a white baseball cap with a black rim.

A second man was wearing a dark blue hooded top, a black baseball cap, black tracksuit pants with white stripes down the side and orange gloves.

A third man was wearing a blue hooded jumper and black tracksuit pants, black gloves and white shoes.

The fourth man a black hooded jumper with white writing on it, green gloves, black tracksuit pants with three white stripes down the side, a yellow/green T-shirt and white shoes.

Due to the size and amount of items stolen, it is likely the offenders used a large vehicle to transport the stolen goods.

Police ask anyone who may have information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or through www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Watching the video of this on WIN News, the thing which struck me was how bright and clear it is. Did they have every light in the place on?

“Boat Fish Finder GPSs, Waeco fridges, sleeping bags and various reels and rods.”

Sounds like a good weekend down the coast.

Would be nice if we had the video to look at on this site. Surprised it’s not on the Crime Stoppers site if no where else…

I like the police speak “All men were believed to be wearing gloves and hoods to cover their faces.”

Surely they either were or they werent. Is it really a matter of ‘belief’?

No idea what they stole, but there are plenty of rods that go for over $300 and reel for up to $1000, so it could be an ‘good’ haul. However, it does sound like a weekend at the coast, or starting up a fishing charter business.

Reckon if it was my haul I’d be somewhere in SA or WA by now, driving up to NW WA to unload the stuff on the isolated beaches south of Broome. But it’s unlikely these hoodies would have that foresight and will probably do time for this… sorry I mean get suspended ACT time for this.

It can be hard to determine from video if ALL offenders were wearing gloves, dtc. They possibly were speculating off the assumption that no fingerprints were found, therefore “believe”.
