Police to investigate Eimeo school break-in

Police are responding to reports of a break-in at an Eimeo school overnight.

A Queensland Police spokesman said a crew was en route to Eimeo Road State School about 7.45am.

“Information came in that one of the school’s blocks has been broken into,” the spokesman said.

“The early indication is that someone has broken into a (a building) and there may be property stolen.”

It comes after a number of thieves targeted sports clubs and community centres in the Mackay region over the past two weeks.

The Mackay City Bowls Club, Wests Leagues Club and Sarina Bowls Club have all reported break and enters.

These crimes remain unsolved, with police treating them as unrelated to each other.

Last week, about $2000 worth of damage was caused when offenders broke into the Memorial Swim Centre.
