Farm burglaries, St George

Police are investigating a series of burglaries where a firearm, motorcycles and livestock have been stolen from rural properties in Saint George in the past fortnight, Queensland Police say.

Since May 15, thieves on motorcycles have targeted at least nine properties at night, stealing a firearm, two motorbikes, a quad bike, farm equipment, fuel and other personal items.

On Friday night, May 19, a shed at an airstrip at Balonne Airways was broken into with equipment stolen and several vehicles damaged.

In another linked incident, two sheep were slaughtered and stolen from a Powrunna Road property on Saturday night.

On Sunday afternoon, police recovered an amount of suspected stolen property which was hidden in an old rifle range in Saint George.

Investigators are attempting to locate the owner of a red and white 2006 Honda XR250L dirt motorcycle which had since been repainted (pictured) and was among the recovered property.

Police are urging property owners in the Saint George and Roma areas to be extra vigilant and take preventative measures to further secure their vehicles and property.
