Dunedin police are seeking information about the burglary
of a camper van (pictured), and the theft of camera equipment
worth about $4000 from inside.
Sergeant Dave Scott said the vehicle was broken into between
5pm and 6.15pm yesterday. It was parked in the Countdown
supermarket car park in the central city.
Sgt Scott said a side window was jemmied and left shattered
on the ground. As well as cameras and camera equipment, a
40-litre red backpack containing womenswear was stolen.
Sgt Scott asked anyone who saw the break-in, or had
information about the incident, to contact Dunedin police on
''Given the circumstances I think there is a high possibility
a member of the public has seen something that could assist
this investigation,'' he said.
It was the second such burglary of, and theft from, a camper
van in Dunedin this week.
On Tuesday afternoon a camper van being used by English
visitors was burgled and their belongings stolen. The vehicle
was parked near Mt Cargill.
