Police won't rest until crime spree offenders are caught

MIRIAM Vale police officers will not rest until the offenders responsible for five break-ins are caught.

Police have been working around the clock to find the two men who were caught on CCTV wearing white coveralls breaking into businesses on Saturday night.

The investigation was assisted this morning with SES volunteers from Miriam Vale and Calliope walking the street looking for evidence left behind.

Miriam Vale police officer in charge Senior Sergeant Owen Harms said they were looking for anything to help identify the offenders.

"We are looking for their gloves, their white overalls and their masks," he said.

"We will be going through bins for dockets, medication packets from the pharmacy and the safe from Bush to Beach gift store."

Manager of Bush to Beach Gift Store Tammy Weir-Smith said she was upset her store was broken into.

"It's our busiest time of the year and to lose our takings is a financial blow," she said.

"It's around a couple of grand they took but we're not really sure at this stage."

Gladstone Constable Alex Weatherby said the investigation was still ongoing.

"We have no persons in mind at the moment and want to get as much information from the public as possible," he said.

"We haven't had any other areas hit by a crime spree like this so it seems to be isolated to Miriam Vale."

If anyone has any information please call CRIMESTOPPERS on 1800 333 000.
