Break-in #2 at CHA

Break-in #2 at CHA

CHA's Melbourne warehouse has been burgled for the second time in a week, with thieves taking around 60 Toshiba notebooks worth $300,000.

Police believe between six and nine people were involved in the heist, which took place around 10:30pm on Friday, 18 July.

The thieves used sledge hammers to force entry into the building and storeroom.

A surveillance video camera filmed the burglary, which took five to seven minutes to complete.

The theft came just two days after $180,000 worth of Toshiba notebooks were stolen from the warehouse, and police believe the same thieves are responsible. A Budget rent-a-truck was used in both instances, and only Toshiba machines were targeted.

CHA has since placed security guards on duty.

Investigating officer senior detective Greg Stewart said the stolen goods will most likely be sold through a Melbourne-based retailer.

Anyone with information regarding the burglaries should contact senior detective Stewart or senior detective constable Tim Cron, Victoria Police, on (03) 9419 4816; or Peter Ball, managing director of CHA on (03) 9251 3111.
