Bumbling thieves’ unable to get into aquatic centre kiosk

THIEVES went to some lengths in trying to gain access to the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre on Saturday night.

First the group unsuccessfully attempted to bust through a roller door at the front of the centre.

When that failed the robbers took a hacksaw to a chain on a rear gate, eventually making it inside the grounds.

But their attempts to enter the centre's kiosk were ultimately in vain with police confirming the luckless thieves had been unable to gain access.

Anyone with information which might assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
