Storage locker surprise

KAREN Windows was as surprised as anyone when police rang her on Wednesday afternoon.

She manages Coffs Harbour Hi-Tech Self Storage at Toormina’s Craft Close which became the focus of a police investigation into illegal drug activity.

“They contacted us to say a person of interest has a storage facility here and they turned up with the customer,” Mrs Windows told the Coffs Coast Advocate.

“This is not something that happens every day and in fact it’s the first one we’ve had. The customer had only been here for a week and she will now be evicted because she is in breach of her contract.”

Mrs Windows said customers signed a storage contract which states they will not store hazardous, flammable, stolen or perishable materials.

She said she’d seen no sign of suspicious activity recently and she has no knowledge of what is in any of the storage bays, which only measure 1.5m by 1.5m.

“We have no access to them because they are self-storage units,” she said.

“The customers are the only ones who have access to their gear and they can only do so between 7am and 7pm.”
