Glenlee couple come home to break-in

A ROCKHAMPTON man and his wife returned home from work on Tuesday to find the back door of their Glenlee property smashed in and their belongings scattered around the house.

The man, who asked not to be named, yesterday told The Morning Bulletin they had lived in their home for more than 15 years and never experienced a break-in.

"They (offender/s) pulled out cupboards and drawers, so it looks as if they've tried to take small things that were easy to take," he said.

Stolen items included an iPod, a portable hard-drive, watches and rings.

Police and forensic crews were at the scene yesterday morning.

But the Glenlee resident said the important thing was that no-one was hurt.

"At the end of the day, it's just a blessing that no-one was harmed and that my wife and I are safe," he said.

"It's not the end of the world and I think it's just important to let neighbours know to be aware of what's happened."

The couple contacted all of their neighbours to notify them of the incident.

The man said one good thing that came out of it was that it brought all their neighbours together.

A Rockhampton police spokesman said investigations were continuing.

Anyone with any information should contact police on 4932 6262 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
