Thieves strike

THIEVES have stolen jars of coins, credit cards, wallets, gas bottles, rammers and a chainsaw in a series of break and enters and thefts from vehicles from south of Gympie, out to Wolvi and Goomeri in the past week.

Two jars of coins were stolen from inside a house in McKewens Rd at Kilkivan, a gas bottle was stolen from a caravan parked at a property in Murphy St, Goomeri, a shed was broken into at Counter Rd, Wolvi, and a Stihl boss chainsaw stolen, credit cards were stolen from a wallet inside a house at Luckona Court on the Southside, and two vibrating rammers were stolen from a secure construction site south of Gympie.

Correction

A COURT report in last Thursday's Gympie Times incorrectly stated that Pie Creek man Alex Christopher Catton, 19, had pleaded guilty to receiving tainted property and was fined $2010.

Mr Catton has actually pleaded not guilty to the charge and been remanded to Gympie Magistrates Court at a later date.

The Gympie Times apologises for any distress this error may have caused.
