Jeparit Supermarket Burgled Again

The Jeparit supermarket has been burgled again for the second time in recent weeks.

The latest incident occurred sometime over Sunday night and Monday morning.

Rainbow police Leading Senior Constable Tony Clark said police were called to the supermarket, at 32 Roy Street, at 9.30am on Monday.

“There has been a copious quantity of cigarettes and alcohol taken from the store,” he said.

“At this stage we don’t believe there to be any money stolen.”

The burglary was through forced entry through the front door.

“There is a bit of repairs to be done but I think an upgrade of the security will be a bigger thing at this stage.”

He said the Horsham police Criminal Investigation Unit was on site and working its way through the scene and CCTV footage.

“I would say we’re looking at almost $10,000 worth stolen,” he told the Wimmera Mail Times.

The specific time of when the burglary occurred is not yet known.

Leading SC Clark said people with information could phone the Criminal Investigation Unit at the Horsham Police Station on 5382 9262, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au.
