Posted: 6pm 03 Aug 2022

Arson at Woorim

The male public toilet block at Woorim was damaged by fire after a bin was set alight at 12.50am on July 31, with thick, black smoke damaging the walls and ceiling.

The fire occurred in a bin that contained paper towel.

Thieves target car

A broken down vehicle left on Dayboro Rd at Dayboro was hit by thieves twice in the past few weeks.

The white 2003 Holden Commodore sedan, with Queensland registration 244-EC5 was left on the road on July 2.

The owner, who lives some distance away, returned to repair the vehicle on July 14 and found both registration plates had been stolen.

After obtaining new plates, the owner returned on July 30 to fit them and remove the vehicle, only to find the car had been stolen.

Burglars strike


Cash and a lawnmower were stolen from a Lawnton home between 7.10am and 4.30pm on July 28.

Police believe the burglars gained entry to the Todds Rd property through a dog door.

The resident arrived home to find her front door wide open and her dogs loose.


Heartless burglars stole two charity tins from a business on Station Rd at Burpengary early this week.

The offence happened between 3pm on July 30 and 6.30am on August 1 after the culprits forced a rear door.

Stolen e-scooter

An opportunistic thief stole an e-scooter from a Narangba sporting field while the owner was at training.

The Ninebot e-scooter was left inside the fence with other bags belonging to people training when the theft happened between 6.45pm and 7.45pm on July 28.

Tools taken

Cordless tools were stolen from a locked tool box on the back of a ute parked outside a property in Silurian Lane at Kallangur late last month.

The gadgets – a Makita bag of cordless tools and a Bosch grinder case of impact sockets – were taken between 5pm on July 28 and 5am on July 29.
