Nine break-ins targeting Wagga homes and businesses over the weekend have been labelled “concerning” by police.
Dan Murphys, Tolland’s petrol station and Casshies were just a few of the businesses targeted during the spate of incidents over the weekend.
Riverina Police District’s Superintendent Bob Noble said police responded to an incident at Casshies at 2.30am on Monday morning.
“There were a number persons of interest seen on CCTV, I believe four,” he said.
“We are working hard on working out who these four people of interest are and we are pretty confident we can put these people before the court.”
At this stage, police will not be releasing descriptions of individuals captured on the CCTV footage.
“There was a red Corolla, which is potentially a stolen vehicle,” Superintendent Noble said.
Superintendent Noble said it was “significant and concerning” that nine break and enters were reported in one weekend.
“We do have cause to believe there are linkages between some of those, but not all,” he said. “It’s been a mix of business and residential.”
Superintendent Noble said a number of offenders forced their way into the petrol station on Bourke Street, Tolland and stole a number of items.
“There was a staff member present so there’s a circumstance of aggravation which makes for a pretty serious offence,” he said.
“I believe it was just brute force and kicked the door open.”
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1800 333 000 or visiting the online reporting page.
