Police Are Appealing For Information About Melton Botanic Gardens Burglary

Police from the Melton Burglary Unit are appealing for information following a burglary at the Melton Botanic Gardens last month.

It is believed offenders broke into three sheds on William Street just before 5am on Tuesday 25 March.

Once inside two men allegedly stole a large amount of property including a distinctive red 70-year-old concrete mixer, two lawn mowers, six weedicide packs and two hoses.

Investigators have released an image of the stolen concrete mixer and images of two men that may assist with their investigation.

Police are also investigating another burglary that occurred at the gardens sometime overnight on 6 April.

One shed was broken into and a watering system, pavers and hoses were stolen.

At this stage it is not known if the burglaries are linked.

Anyone with information or anyone who may have witnessed the burglary is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or log into www.crimestoppers.com.au
