Jeweller's window broken by vandals

October 18, 2017

Cummins Lane jeweller Brett Cummins inspects the broken window.

At first glance it looks like a bullet hole but Cummins Lane jeweller Brett Cummins thinks a slingshot was used to fling an object through his shop window, leaving an expensive crack to fix.

The vandalism occurred between the night of October 6 and the morning of October 7.

Mr Cummins said security footage had been inspected.

“We think a slingshot was used because we can’t see anyone near the shop, so we think it had to have been done from a distance,” he said.

“At first glance it looks like a bullet hole.

“We found pieces of glass all the way at the back of the shop.

“It’s very disappointing and an inconvenience because you work hard to get where you are and then someone does this.

“It is an expensive job to fix the glass window but we have insurance.”

The business had only been operating for five weeks when the vandalism occurred.

Mr Cummins, who travels in each day from his home in Albury, said the incident did not make him think any less of the town and the people.

“I love the town and am actually thinking of moving here,” he said.
