Bandits caught in action replay



THIS alarming security footage captures three bandits in their daring raid on Fishing Tackle Australia last week. One of them can be seen smashing display cabinets containing fishing reels. They stole up to $20,000 worth of gear which also included rods and waders. Coffs Harbour Target Action Group (TAG) officers, who are chasing a number of fresh leads, supplied the vision in the hope Coffs Coast Advocate readers can help them with their investigation. At 4am on May 16, the gang cut a security fence and broke into the rear of the Pacific Highway premises. They grabbed what they wanted before fleeing the scene the same way they arrived ? in a stolen maroon Falcon station wagon which was found the following morning dumped in a car park near the Pacific Highway at Nambucca Heads. Fishing Tackle Australia's owners have spent $20,000 in a further security upgrade since the robbery. n Anyone with information is urged to phone Coffs Harbour police on 6652 0299.
