Chocolates and fizz in break-in

TWO boxes of chocolates and a bottle of champagne were the only items stolen in the break-in at One Mile State School overnight Monday.

Police said yesterday their investigations indicated the burglary occurred between 3pm Monday and 5am Tuesday.

Police said the offenders, thought to be children, entered the school yard and sprayed graffiti, before getting into the staff meal room, where they stole the chocolate and champagne, which were in staff pigeon holes and were Christmas presents.

Graffiti included "ALL WILL DIE" and "#14 was here".

The burglars allegedly spat chocolate on a wall and fled after they broke open a door, causing an alarm to sound.

They smashed the bottle of champagne against a brick wall before fleeing, police said.
