Police investigating storage facility burglaries

Can you help?

ACT Policing is seeking information about some items stolen during two burglaries of a storage facility on Nettlefold Street, Belconnen.

The burglaries occurred on the nights of Tuesday, 27 November and Thursday, 29 November 2018.

In both instances, the offender or offenders entered the complex through a hole cut in the fence. Attempts were made to break into several storage units, however not every unit targeted was entered.

Police are now releasing details of three distinct items stolen in these burglaries which are likely to be easily identified.

The first item is an artwork, made up of stone pieces on small plinths, one of which is on a glowing red base.

The second is an Order of Australia medal, gold in colour, on a royal blue ribbon with a central stripe of a gold wattle pattern.

The third item is a custom-made Olympus BX51TF model microscope and a digital camera, which were stored in a locked black, Pelican brand case with wheels and a handle.

Police are urging anyone who may have any information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6335780. Information can be provided anonymously.
