Echuca police believe thefts from three farms between Thursday and Saturday might be linked.June 18, 2014 3:01am
Thousands of dollars worth of equipment, electrical goods and personal items have been stolen from three rural properties in a string of thefts.
Echuca police are appealing for information about the thefts, which occurred between Thursday night and Saturday morning.
A lawn mower, electrical tools and a generator were among items taken from a property on Matheson Rd, Echuca, overnight Thursday.
Police said the thieves loaded the items into the homeowner’s own trailer, before driving off with the goods.
Over the same period, a house in Patho School Rd, between Torrumbarry and Gunbower, was broken into by forcing open a window.
A trailer was also stolen, as well as televisions, items of sentimental value, bedding, tools and alcohol.
Between 5.30pm Friday and 9.30am Saturday, a shotgun, socket set and spanner set, valued at $1200, were stolen from a vehicle parked on Mitiamo Rd.
Detective Sergeant Brendon Murphy of Echuca Criminal Investigation Unit said the thefts could be connected.
‘‘We cannot say that they are part of any bigger operation,’’ he said.
‘‘There are a number of persons possibly responsible for a lot of our rural thefts.
‘‘We are continuing to work at dismantling and prosecuting the operations of all of these people.’’
Anyone with information about any of the incidents can contact Echuca police on 5482
