THE owners of the Warehouse Fitness Centre are asking the public to help identify the people who robbed them just weeks after celebrating their reopening.

Between 3.30am and 4.40am on Tuesday, August 8, two men were captured on the centre’s surveillance system stealing a large antique safe and building materials, including a drill and blower. They left the premises in a light-coloured ute towing an enclosed trailer.

Owner Sam Vinci said the safe in particular had sentimental value.

“The safe has been a part of the Hampton Road building as long as I can remember; it’s a bit old school, as is the Warehouse gym,” she said.

“Possibly someone believed something of a lot of value was in it, but it contained around $1300 to $1500 in member footy tipping money and a whole heap of keys.”

Mrs Vinci has asked if anyone recognises the vehicle or people, or if they know of the location of the items, particularly the safe, to call Fremantle police on 9430 1222 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
