Crims caught on CCTV at Government office burglary

POLICE want information from the public after Tweed's latest government building was robbed.

The new Service NSW centre, which hasn't even opened, was targeted by a man and woman about 2.40am Thursday morning.

Police said a large amount of property, including computer hardware, electrical goods and tools were stolen during the break and enter.

Detectives viewed CCTV footage and saw the two suspects at the front of the premises, before they carried the stolen items from inside and loaded them into a car.

Tradesmen arrived at the Rivendell Dr site to find the scene on Thursday morning.

Site manager Phil Vagg told My Daily News the criminals had taken "everything."

"They took everything, our tools as well," site manager Phil Vagg said.

"The boys are all missing tools and a lot of electrical equipment as well.

"It's a real low act, especially for the tradies to lose all their gear.

"It could've been worse, they could've trashed the place too."

Tweed Detectives are now appealing for anyone with information about the incident to come forward, including anyone who may be approached to buy similar property for a reduced price.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
