Ram-raiders hit Commander for $100,000

Thieves made off with about $100,000 worth of computer equipment after ram-raiding a Commander warehouse in the Sydney suburb of Artarmon.

According to police reports, the thieves reversed a white Toyota Hiace van through a roller door shortly after midnight on February 9, forcing the door off its hinges.

They then loaded computers and associated equipment into the back of the van before heading off in a northerly direction. A blue Subaru WRX accompanied it.

A police spokesperson said the crime was being treated as an isolated incident as there had been no similar offences reported in the area. The damage had not been as extensive as a recent bout of ram raids targeting other businesses across Sydney, he said.

A crime scene had been established and forensic tests were undertaken at the site. Security footage from a nearby building was also scoured for information.

None of the offenders had been apprehended at the time of press.

It was business as usual the morning after the ram raid. Commander refused to comment on the impact of the robbery.

Anybody with information should call Chatswood police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
