Between 9pm and 5am last night, April 27, the Beenleigh Senior Citizens Centre work ute was the target of thieves.

The ute is used by the senior centre to visit elderly residents in Beenleigh and surrounds to help them with maintenance and safety repairs that they cannot do themselves.

The vehicle was and has always been parked in the front car park at the centre on Alamein Street and this is the first time the centre has had an incident like this.

Chief Operation Officer Louie Naumovski said it is a very low act stealing equipment that services the elderly.

“We have had no issues with all of our vehicles being parked in our carpark and to come in this morning and find this is frustrating and disappointing,” he said.

“Thousands of dollars of tools and equipment were stolen including De Walt power tools, light bulbs, smoke alarms, plumbing supplies and much much more.

“We are offering a reward for information relating to this break and enter as we want the culprits dealt with by police.”

While the centre will do all they can to ensure their clients are not inconvenienced, this will impact the bookings that were already in place. If you have any information that can help the Beenleigh Senior Citizens Centre, contact them on 3287 1477, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or PoliceLink on 131 444.
