Warnbro bowling club has turned to the power of social media to help find two thieves caught ransacking and stealing cash from their premises.
The Warnbro Bowling Club shared a snippet of CCTV on their Facebook page which shows the hooded bandits, one barefoot, rifling through an office about 5am on Monday.
The club’s vice president, Les Bletchynden, said the burglars had broken in through an outside fence and got away with about $300.
Mr Bletchynden said it was disappointing thieves would target a community club run by volunteers.
“We are a community club and we encourage people to come and enjoy the facilities, so it’s annoying that someone from the community would break in and steal stuff,” he said. “From our point of view it is a little bit disappointing.”
Mr Bletchynden said the incident had been reported to police but thought sharing images of the thieves online might help catch the crooks.
“We reported it to the police — it’s not a lot of money and we don’t expect them to extend a lot of resources to find them, so we thought social media, we will put it out there and someone might know who they are,” he said.
“There’s nothing better than social media at the moment to name and shame.”
Anyone with information should call police on 131 444.
