  • Harvey Norman on Barrier Street, where the offender rammed a rear door with a vehicle and left with nothing. A bag of Subaru car tools was left at the scene.

CCTV located at three of the incidents showed the offender was a male wearing black jeans, a black hooded jumper and a white covering over his face, arriving at and leaving each scene in a maroon Subaru Liberty.

About 11.30pm, police located the maroon Subaru Liberty in Heysen Street, Lyons, and it was identified as a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was seized for forensic examination.
