Ram raid on businesses

GIPPSLAND Gas and Automotive in Bond St, Sale, was targeted by thieves Saturday night, when a car was rammed into the business front.

The thieves got away with four wheel drive parts, equipment and accessories. 

Police are calling for witnesses and said the car used in the incident would have sustained significant and noticeable damage.

Police are also investigating an attempted burglary at Sale’s Midtown Motel, on the corner of Bond and York Sts, after several of its Bond St-facing rooms had their doors kicked in on Saturday night. 

Police aren’t ruling out a connection between this crime and the incident at Gippsland Gas and Automotive.

They are urging people with information about either of these incidents to phone Wellington CIU on 5143 5000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
