THE KWINANA Retired Services League sub branch was broken into on Good Friday – the fourth time in recent years the RSL has been targeted.

But sub branch president Ron Hiscock said despite the hard work required to get the building fixed up, Anzac Day commemorations would take place as planned.

Mr Hiscock estimated the damage bill to be about $10,000, with thousands of dollars damage to security screens and CCTV and security systems.

“We’re resilient aren’t we – we bounce back after things like this,” he said after spending his Easter long weekend at the RSL’s Medina premises on Pace Road to supervise repairs.

 

It appeared the burglars were looking for cash in the early hours of Friday morning.

Just the dartboard, some kids juice packs and some opened wine was taken.

Mr Hiscock was relieved several mannequins on loan from a heritage club and dressed in service clothes had not been damaged.

The sub branch will add a wrought iron gate to its fencing and replace damage lights and cameras.

Kwinana Police tweeted a still image from the CCTV footage in the hopes of identifying the people responsible.


The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 180 333 000.
