Kingaroy charity trashed by vandals

A VOLUNTEER has described the "gut- wrenching" damage assessment after thieves trashed a charity building in Kingaroy.

Pathway 2 Hope, a mental-health and support charity based at 30 King St in Kingaroy, was broken into at the weekend.

Charity volunteer Sandy Towell said a shed used at the back of the building was left "trashed" after thieves smashed in on Saturday night. They stole prescribed medication and electronic equipment. .

"It's bad enough that they stole stuff but to trash it as well is awful," Mrs Towell said. "It's going to take a lot of cleaning up."

Among the stolen goods was a CCTV security system yet to be installed.

Mrs Towell said the system, valued at about $600, was bought after a similar break-in last year.

"It's gut-wrenching when something like this happens to a charity," she said.

The charity is still assessing the damage.

Kingaroy Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Duane Frank urged anyone with information to phone Kingaroy Police on 4160 4900 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
