Police gather evidence from the damage at the Boyanup Pharmacy.
BOYANUP residents have good cause to be concerned after reports of further break-ins in the town.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, the glass on the front door of the post office pharmacy was completely smashed in order to gain entry to the premises.
Glass splinters could be seen strewn around the shop entrance and extending across goods and shelving – as well as through many metres of carpet.
Shop owner Chan Ooi said he was bitterly disappointed to once again be the target of a crime.
“This is the second time in a year there’s been a break-in – and the thieves are wasting their time,” he said. “It appears they were again looking for pseudoephedrine products, which we don’t stock. In fact we have a printed notice at the entrance to the shop announcing just that.”
Police and forensic officers attended the scene and were able to access fingerprints and blood samples found in the store after the break-in.
Video footage from various businesses around the town has also been passed on to police in an effort to identify the vehicle used in the robbery.
Mr Ooi said it wasn’t possible to open the shop to the public until early afternoon because staff were busy trying to clean up and restore normality to the premises.
Entry access to the premises was denied to people without footwear because of the danger of injury from embedded fragments still in the carpet.
Further inquiries in the town revealed the contents of a vehicle’s diesel fuel tank within close proximity to the post office pharmacy had been emptied just 24 hours earlier.
At the southern end of the town the Boyanup Bowling Club recently experienced a break-in of a different type.
Club Treasurer Norm Hart said thieves gained access late one evening and had only one thing in mind.
“They headed for the bar and ransacked the area, stealing our stocks,” he said. “It’s happened before and it’s upsetting because it makes us all pretty angry.”
Police are interested in speaking with anyone who can provide information on the intruders that will help with their inquiries. Members of the public can contact Crime Stoppers on 1300 333 000.
