Break and enters, Sunshine Coast

Police are investigating two break and enters where a van was used to gain entry to separate business premises on the Sunshine Coast this morning.

Around 3.20am, a white van, believed to be a Toyota HiAce, was reversed into the glass doors of a photographic and electrical store on Plaza Parade at Maroochydore. The sole occupant then entered the store, smashing a number of glass cabinets before stealing cameras and equipment stolen.

Then at 4.10am the same van was again used to smash the glass doors of a machinery business on Caloundra Road at Caloundra West.

Further investigations indicate the hire van was stolen from Brisbane and will have extensive damage as a result.

Investigations are continuing.
