POWER tools worth over $4,060 were stolen from the Baw Baw Shire Council’s Normanby Street depot last week.

The theft took place overnight between 5pm Tuesday and 6am Wednesday.


Police told The Warragul Citizen thieves broke through a partially-repaired hole in the fence at the back of the depot which connects to St Andrew’s Kindergarten and a church car park.

Police have no suspects but believe a number of people and a vehicle would have been required to carry out the burglary.

Thieves broke through a similar wire fence at the neighbouring SP AusNet depot last month.

Stolen goods include three brush cutters worth $700 each, a chainsaw worth $700, a grass trimmer worth $650, a leaf blower worth $600, a lawn edger and a lock.


Anyone with information on the burglary should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
