Devastated over theft of campervan

A CABARITA family is looking for answers after the theft of a campervan more than a month ago.

In the early morning of February 17, Geoff Anderson's campervan and trailer were stolen from a secure underground car park.

Mr Anderson claims the thieves had to break into his car and move it to be able to access the campervan and that they must have used bolt cutters and worn gloves.

He believes it was a targeted attack.

“I do not suspect anyone who lives in the units at the moment, but only people who have lived here before would even know I own one,” Mr Anderson said.

“It's out of sight.”

Mr Anderson said the crime had a devastating effect on his 10-year-old daughter, Kirra.

“She cries every day,” Mr Anderson said.

“She says to me ‘Daddy that was our camper trailer, how could someone steal it, it was ours'.

“To say we are victims of crime is an understatement.”

As a single parent Mr Anderson said he could not afford to replace the uninsured campervan and trailer.

“I just can't afford another trailer,” he said.

“I wasn't insured and I lost my whole life savings.

“It had a television, fridge, camper bed, everything.

“It will be almost $9000 to replace. It wasn't even a year old.”

Police are continuing their investigations.

Inspector Greg Carey said police were seeking assistance from anyone who may have been in the area at the time or may know about the incident.

Anyone with information that could assist police with their investigation should contact Kingscliff Police 02 6674 9399 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
