Thieves target dental surgeries

DENTAL surgeries were the main target for thieves in Gympie's CBD on Tuesday night.

Three businesses, two of them dentists, were broken into some time between close of business Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

Two dental practices in Mary St were burgled and in both cases the offenders got in through the rear of the premises.

Police said offenders went through cupboards and drawers at one practice where they found a petty cash tin and stole a quantity of money.

The other dentist was broken through two rear doors, which were jemmied open.

Cupboards and drawers were searched but nothing of value was found.

Offenders also got into a Reef St business through a rear roller door and internal door, which they forced open.

Police said cupboards and drawers were searched by the thieves but the owners had left nothing of value on the premises overnight and the thieves left empty-handed.

A Gympie Police Scenes of Crime officer attended all three locations and took evidence away to be analysed.

Anyone with information is asked to phone police on 5480 1111.
