Echuca police are confident they will catch those responsible for a series of burglaries in the town last month.
In a weekend spree between April 25 and 27, thieves stole more than $30,000 worth of equipment in Echuca east’s industrial area.
A ute stolen from a Cornelia Creek Rd business was recovered on April 28, but a $31,000 John Deere Gator utility vehicle, stolen from the Powercor depot in Mundarra Rd, and two chainsaws, stolen from an Ogilvie Ave business, have not been found.
Two weeks earlier, thieves stole more than $20,000 worth of computers, including 10 laptops and 15 iPads, from St Mary’s Primary School in Bridlington Ave.
Echuca Criminal Investigation Unit Senior Detective Bernie Quinlan said police were working through several avenues of inquiry.
‘‘Members of the public have been terrific, in that we have received a lot of information concerning these burglaries,’’ he said.
‘‘Whilst in the short term, they haven’t been resolved, we are confident that in time we will locate this property and eventually charge those responsible.’’
Anyone with information relating to any of these incidents can contact Echuca police on 5482
