Some of the more notable items stolen include Fender and Martin and Co electric and acoustic guitars, wine, a Canon SLR digital camera, set and unset opals, a World Solar Challenge banner, a Megger electrical tag and test instrument and a men's Omega watch.

Anyone who sees any of these stolen items or is offered them for sale should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or their local police immediately.
