Magazine theft at Westfield Southland, VIC

Someone broke into the storage cage near our Southland newsagency in Victoria, when no one was around and before we open, cut open bundles of magazines delivered to us and stole almost all of our delivery that was due on sale  yesterday morning.

We have the thief on camera doing this and removing a considerable value of stock.

We have reported the matter to the police and provided the security footage.

It’s clear from the evidence what they were doing and what they were looking for.

Given that the volume stock taken would only be of value to a retailer, we are considering putting the evidence in the public domain. It’s something we are discussing with the police.

I hope the police identify and catch the person involved. We will do everything possible to support them.

    UPDATE: The local police have been awesome. They have made an arrest.
