Nightmare start to day has happy ending



MARK CREASEY arrived at work yesterday morning to find his South Grafton workshop had been broken into and about $10,000 worth of tools and equipment stolen.

Thieves had cut a hole in the fence to his New Street workshop in the early hours of the morning and used bolt cutters to break locks and gain access to his power tools.

But good police work and some helpful information from the public ensured Mr Creasey's nightmare start to the day wouldn't continue when the alleged culprit was arrested late yesterday morn- ing.

A police spokesman said the man was charged with break and enter and stealing, as well as charges from two previous warrants. He was refused bail and will appear in Grafton Local Court next week. All the stolen tools were recovered.
