Police believe sometime between 10am and 4pm on Tuesday, March 15, a shed has been broken into on Pacholke Rd at Spring Creek.

The property owner returned home about 4pm and noticed some plastic material, believed to be a piece of a broken tail light, on the ground near a shed post.

While the resident thought it was out of place, they continued unpacking the groceries and went inside the house.

About 5.30pm that evening, the resident has done back to at the light near the post again at which time they discovered all but a small piece of the debris had disappeared.

They then proceeded into the shed to cover their car for the night and found one of the car doors ajar and the glove box open.

A bad with a cordless drill and three hand tools, and various other items, were missing.
