ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after a ram raid took place at the PETstock store in Iron Knob Street, Fyshwick early this morning (Monday, 11 April).

Around 2.45am police attended the premises after reports that a truck had crashed into the store.

Police were quickly at the location and saw a large yellow back-hoe had been driven through the front doors causing significant damage. The back-hoe is believed to have been stolen from the building site next door to the store.

Damage to the front doors and building has been estimated at around $100,000.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

I was in the store today and I am happy to report no animals were hurt 🙂

@EvanJames I went to that pet store a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully they do not sell live animals. They do however keep a rabbit in a cage just at the front of the store. The rabbit is not for sale and is seems to be more like the store’s own pet/mascot. They take the rabbit out for kids to pet etc. I hope it survived!

BHP had a ship named in the town’s honour from 1923-1955.

I imagine her sailors were prouder than usual to have the ship’s name on their hats.

I wonder if she ever sailed past the Titan Uranus. http://www.icis.com/blogs/icis-chemicals-confidential/files/2008/11/shipping-news-titan-uranus.html

Why have I failed to notice that fantastic street name until today!?

+1. A new addition to my list of favoured street and location names.

What would you steal from ram raiding a pet store? Seems alot of risk for only as much pet food you can cart away. Not like your going to get $50k worth of goodies for 100k+ damage (and possible risk of injury)

That store is brand new right?
Yes, something tells me to start checking in with the local crazy cat lady.
Or the other competing businesses.
Or the local drunks.
That should narrow it down to a couple of hundred suspects.

Bit of a over the top reaction if you’ve just realised you are out of cat food.

PETA strike again?

jeez, I hope there weren’t any animals in there? Some of the pet places in Fyshwick have the full range of real live animals for sale.
