Break-in at Hegvold Stadium

POLICE are investigating a break-and-enter at Rockhampton’s Hegvold Stadium at the weekend.

Forensic officers yesterday morning attended the stadium, which has recently undergone a major upgrade.

A police spokesman yesterday said an office had been ransacked but it was yet to be determined what damage had occurred or how much property had been taken, if any.

Investigations are continuing.

Meanwhile, police are also investigating a drug-related incident that occurred at a Dean Street, North Rockhampton, property on the weekend.

“Investigations are still under way to identify offenders,” a police spokeswoman said.

Late yesterday afternoon, no one had been charged.

There were reports a house on Dean Street was cordoned off on Saturday night.

And in a separate incident which kept police busy on the weekend, a motorcyclist was taken to Sarina Hospital after crashing into the back of a police car at Carmila.

An ambulance spokesman said the motorcyclist, believed to be aged in his 30s, suffered an arm injury in the crash on Saturday about 11am.

Further details were not available.

Anyone with information about either of the first two incidents should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
