ACT Policing is investigating a burglary in Crace on Wednesday evening (September 21) which involved the theft of $25,000 worth of tools.
The burglary is believed to have occurred between 5.30pm on Wednesday afternoon (September 21) and 6am Thursday morning (September 22) at a building site on Baratta Street in Crace.
A number of tools valued at nearly $25,000 were taken after the offenders gained entry to a shipping container by cutting the padlock. The tools stolen included a Hitachi jack hammer, Husqvarna chainsaw, Gentec generator and a pressure washer.
Superintendent Brett Kidner said the public’s assistance is valuable when solving crimes such as this.
“Police often rely on the community’s support in solving crimes such as this. I would urge members of the public that if they see any suspicious behaviour around constructions site, particularly after hours, they should contact police immediately,” he said.
Anyone who may witnessed any suspicious behaviour in Baratta Street, Crace on Wednesday night / Thursday morning, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information may be provided anonymously.
