As the club industry continues its struggle with COVID-19, a St Marys sporting venue has been hit by burglars, stealing nine poker machines and golf products valued in excess of $45,000.
Between 9pm on Saturday, July 11 and 2am on Sunday, July 12 CCTV footage depicts a white vehicle approaching the Links Road premises before persons jump out and cut the padlock bolts from the front boom gates.
The vehicle drove into the location and exited a short time later.
About an hour later a red four-wheel drive attended and persons are seen to load items into the back of it.
A short time later it left, and again returned. This vehicle does this four times and the white vehicle also returns with it.
About 2am all vehicles left the location.
It was later discovered by operators that a total of nine poker machines and golf products valued in excess of $45,000.00 including shoes, clubs, bags and clothing had been stolen.
CCTV has been obtained and investigations are continuing.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
