GLADSTONE police are looking for a man who allegedly broke into Mount Larcom Bowls Club, Mount Larcom State School and Mount Larcom Community Pool.

Police believe the break-ins on Sunday night are linked to one man.

 

 

He left with about $4000 and alcohol from the bowls club, laptops from the school and drinks and food from the pool.

There was forced entry into each of the buildings.

Police said the man appeared to know his way around the bowls club and spent about an hour inside after having broken in.

They said he was wearing surgical gloves and a beanie over his face once inside, but footage shows his uncovered face outside.

CCTV footage  shows the man taking items, including a bucket near CCTV cameras,  from behind the bar.

If he took the CCTV recorder, instead of the bucket, the police would not have the footage of his face.

Gladstone Police Criminal Investigation Branch detective senior sergeant Luke Peachey said the man had knowledge of the area and he expected people from the community would be able to recognise him.

People with information should call Gladstone Police Station on 4971 3222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
