Attempted break-in at Plaza

THE handprint on this glass door at the entrance to Yeppoon’s Keppel Bay Plaza could help police find a would-be intruder.

At 12.45am yesterday someone tried to get into the plaza by pushing on the doors.

Senior Sergeant Bob Barclay of Yeppoon police said the force cracked the glass, but the culprit wasn’t able to get inside the building.

Police scenes-of-crime officers fingerprinted the area and were continuing their investigations, including reviewing CCTV footage.

The would-be burglar was still at large yesterday evening.

Senior Sergeant Barclay was appealing for anyone who might have witnessed the incident or had any information to call Yeppoon police on 4939 0000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
