Dave fuming as crime becomes a family affair

THE locks on the front doors of Dave Woodhall's Ulmarra newsagency had stood the test of time, but on Sunday night they were broken with a screwdriver.

It is believed the same people who broke into the Ulmarra Hotel also tried to break in to Mr Woodhall's business on Coldstream St.

The thieves also broke the locks on the door of an adjacent hair salon, which is run by Mr Woodhall's wife.

"You hate it when anything of your own gets broken by someone else," Mr Woodhall said.

"Now we have to pay for the repairs."

Mr Woodhall said it had been about nine years since his business was last broken into.

It is thought the break in happened between 2-3am yesterday.
