TWO of Bribie's community groups have been left stunned after their storage sheds were broken into late last week.
The Bribie Island Lions Club and Bribie Vietnam Veterans had their storage sheds on First Ave broken into overnight on Thursday with items stolen from both groups.
Both groups have storage sheds located behind the indoor bowls and bridge club buildings on First Ave.
Vietnam Veterans secretary Jock Young described the offenders as "low-lifes" and said they were annoyed considering how hard they worked with the community.
"We go out there and volunteer and do all this stuff in the community to give away and someone steals it from us, we are pretty peed off about it actually," Mr Young said.
The Vietnams Vets had a high pressure gurney with accompanying hoses and sausages taken from their shed.
"I think the gurney was worth about $5000 or $6000 altogether. We got it some time ago but we use it in Memorial Park on Bribie to clean the paths and park area," Mr Young said.
"Hopefully insurance might cover it and that's something we're looking into now.
The roller door, which the offenders used to gain entry, will have to be replaced.
Mr Young said he was hopeful the offenders would be found but considering the location of the sheds, it would be highly unlikely anyone saw anything.
"There would be no one near there who would have seen it. There are a few buildings in front of our sheds and behind us there's bush area," he said. "It's dark so there would be no reason for anyone to go in there at night time, which is unfortunate for us."
Bribie Island Lions Club board member Peter Kaye said it was disappointing that someone would feel the need to steal from community groups.
"We do the markets in Brennan Park on a Sunday and they have broken in and taken most of the items we had set up and ready to go," Mr Kaye said. "We had sausages, eggs, bacon and drinks, probably to the value of about $200 or $300 worth all taken.
"We were really quite lucky. They left behind a generator but the Vets had more expensive items taken.
"It wasn't the greatest thing to happen but it's just unfortunate and one of those things you hope never happens again."
Mr Kaye said the groups were looking into ways of securing the area but the cost of alarms was too expensive.
"We just need something there as a deterrent, so it doesn't happen again," he said.
Bribie police senior sergeant David Crawford-Raby said there were a number of business premises that were broken into overnight on January 3.
Snr sgt Crawford-Raby also said along with the Lions and Vietnam Vets sheds, the council depot and the aquatic centre were also targeted on the same night.
"We're working with the Caboolture Crime Unit in relation to a couple of incidents that happened overnight and into the early hours of last Friday," Snr sgt Crawford-Raby said.
"These matters are still under investigation."
If anyone has information which could assist police with their inquiries phone Bribie police on 3410 9222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
