FOR the second time in less than three months, Gunnedah’s Avro Metaland has been the target of thieves.

Police are investigating after the Mullaley Road business was broken into at 4am on Saturday.

Items such as Milwaukee power tools, socket sets and tool belts were stolen, with the total value unknown.

A police spokesperson told the Namoi Valley Independent CCTV footage would be key to the investigation.

“We are currently reviewing some security footage from the business and hopefully that should provide us with some leads,” the spokesperson said.

“In light of this incident, we want to remind people to take care when securing their property as we have also seen some thefts in the Mornington Estate area recently, too.”

Police don’t believe the weekend’s incident is related to the previous time Avro Metaland was broken into on April 13.

“At this stage there is no evidence to suggest the two are related,” the spokesperson said.

“Investigations are continuing and we urge anyone with information to come forward.” 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Gunnedah Police Station on 6742 9099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
