Brazen crims target string of CQ businesses

A NUMBER of brazen break and enters in the past week are continuing to put both residents and businesses across the Rockhampton region on high alert.

Police are currently on the look out for a male suspect who allegedly became aggressive at a Bolsover St motel in Rockhampton’s CBD.

The alleged offender, aged between 24 to 28 years old, reportedly kicked and damaged a door during the mid-afternoon of September 12, before fleeing the scene.

He is described as caucasian in appearance with a short goatee and fair coloured hair, and approximately 172cm tall with a stocky build.

It is understood the suspect was wearing a black T-shirt, black long pants and Adidas joggers at the time of the incident.

A Norman Gardens business also became involved in a criminal investigation on Sunday after four males broke into the dwelling.

The men reportedly gained access just before 8pm by smashing both a door’s night latch and deadlock.

It is unknown if any goods were stolen from the business.

Unfortunately, it is a different story for the respective owners of two vehicles in Rockhampton’s north.
