Dubbo Police are investigating after a break and enter occurred at Western Plains Windows and Glass, on Douglas Mawson Drive, in the early hours of this morning.
About 2:30am the alarm was activated at the location with the owner arriving a short time later to find his premises ransacked.
It appears that a motor vehicle was used to drive into and smash open the front doors to the premises. The interior of the business was then ransacked.
It has not been confirmed what, if anything, has been taken but the damaged caused has been estimated to be in excess of $30,000.00.
A white utility was seen to leave the area around the time of the break-in. Several hours after the incident a utility was found burnt out on the Golden Highway a few kilometres east of Dubbo.
It has not been confirmed that the burnt out utility is the same one seen on Douglas Mawson Drive. Police are appealing to the community for any information that could assist in this investigation.
