Break-in attempt caught on camera

LOUTS have been caught on at least two surveillance cameras trying to break into a Park Beach restaurant. One of the cameras was less than 10 metres away from the shattered glass.

Another three cameras may have caught the would-be crooks as they made their way to a rear courtyard at McCauley’s Restaurant on Monday night.

Restaurateur John Chittick said footage will be reviewed by both him and police to find the culprits who used a brick left at the scene.

“It looks like they were unsuccessful getting in,” Mr Chittick said.

Despite the bungled break-in attempt, the damage bill will hit at least $500 to replace the glass.

In two-and-a-half years, this is the first problem with crime that Mr Chittick has had.
