Offenders try to steal safe from CQUniversity
POWER was cut to CQUniversity in the early hours of Tuesday after offenders managed to pry open a door leading into the gym.
Sometime between 1am and 2am, the offenders entered the pool area near the university gym and attempted to gain access to a door leading into the gym and cafeteria area.
When they were unable to get in, they climbed over the top of a barbed wire fence and gained entry through a door.
Once inside, they disabled the power and conducted a search through numerous cupboards and lockers.
The offenders attempted to remove a safe from the office area, however their attempt was disrupted by campus security conducting routine patrols.
They then fled from the university in a vehicle when disturbed by campus security.
Police are requesting any assistance from the public in relation to these offences and encourage members of the public to report any suspicious behaviour.
