WATCH: Police on hunt for giraffe after jewellery break-in

UPDATE MONDAY 3.30PM: POLICE have released CCTV of a bizarre alleged break-in, which appears to show a person dressed as a giraffe making their way through Caneland Central after hours. 

About 4.14am on Sunday, two people allegedly forced entry into the Mangrove Road shopping complex. 

While nothing was reported stolen, police have encouraged anyone with information about the incident or the CCTV to contact police as soon as possible. 

INITIAL: POLICE are investigating after thieves allegedly tried to break into a jewellery store at Caneland Central in the early hours of Sunday morning.

A Queensland Police spokeswoman confirmed police responded to Prouds The Jewellers at Caneland about 4.45am.

She said while there was damage to the shop front, the alleged thieves did not manage to gain access to the store and nothing was taken.

It is at this stage unclear how the alleged thieves gained access to Caneland Central after hours.

The spokeswoman confirmed police were collecting CCTV footage from the shopping centre.
