Heartbreak after burglary

The owners of a local business have been left devastated after offenders broke in on the weekend.

It’s understood an offender/offenders broke into Ambience Bakery/Cafe overnight on Sunday/Monday and stole a small amount of cash, as well as a nearly-full charity tin containing donations for the region’s dairy farmers.

A Facebook post from the cafe on Monday morning expressed the owner’s disappointment and anger, particularly in the extra work which had been created by the burglary and taking away family time.

‘‘We are just trying to make a dream happen and give our kids a great life, and I guess at the end of the day you are stealing from them as much as anyone,’’ the post read.

The post prompted an outpouring of support from the community, which the owners said they really appreciated.

●Anyone with information about this incident can phone Cobram police on 5871 1977 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Driver’s licence suspended

A man has had his licence suspended after being detected allegedly drink-driving.

NSW police were patrolling Bruton St in Tocumwal on Saturday when they stopped a Toyota LandCruiser utility about 7.50pm for a random breath test.

The driver, a 36-year-old man, recorded a positive reading and a breath analysis at the Tocumwal Police Station provided a positive blood alcohol content reading of 0.146.

The man was immediately suspended from driving in any state and was issued a notice to appear at Finley Local Court at a later date.

Horse theft charges

A Yarroweyah woman, 56, will face Shepparton Magistrates’ Court at a later date after being charged with the theft of a horse.

Police said a thoroughbred gelding was seized from the woman’s property last month.

The woman is also facing two counts of hindering police and one of handling stolen goods.
