WATCH: ATM stolen in Railway Hotel break in

Update 9.45am:

THE ATM was stolen from the Railway Hotel in last night's break in. Owner Clyde Tanner was called at 1am last night after their alarms were sounding when the offenders jimmied the doors open.

"They obviously knew what they were doing because they were in and out in two minutes," he said.

Mr Tanner said in the five years he had been there he never had any problems.

It's the most recent in a spate of break ins that are doing damage to local businesses. Overnight Friday the Mt Larcom service station was broken into; passers-by reporting to us of numerous police cars in the morning and the area taped off.

The day before that, on Friday, a Tannum Sands business was left puzzled as thieves tried to steal pig's ears and dog food, ignoring the pricey lawn mowers at the shop. Read that story, here.

Earlier:

THE Calliope Railway Hotel was broken in to last night.

The Gladstone Police noticed the damage at 1.43am while on regular patrols.

Investigations are continuing.
