A Gumdale family returned home yesterday afternoon to find the side glass door smashed and property strewn throughout the house. The victims told police that their home had been broken into while they were at work during the day.
The offenders had searched nearly every room in the house stealing property as they went. Property stolen included a large television, iPad, two laptop computers, iPod, iPhone, camera, cash, sunglasses and other property. On this occasion the home was locked and secure and the offenders smashed their way in.
If you reside in the Gumdale area, please keep a look out for any suspicious activity or vehicles and report to police immediately with as much detail as possible. Remember to lock your home, remove all valuables from view and lock vehicles and hide their keys away when at home.
Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.
