Buses damaged at Foster, burglaries at Fish Creek sports clubs

• Two school buses parked just off Court Street in Foster were damaged in what Victoria Police believe to be “an act of vandalism” between Saturday night and Sunday morning August 5 and 6, 2023. Two sports clubs at Fish Creek were broken into during the same night.

VICTORIA Police Wonthaggi Criminal Investigation Unit (CIU) detectives are looking into apparently wilful damage to school buses parked at Foster, while two sports clubs were burgled at Fish Creek.

A Wonthaggi CIU spokesperson said all three incidents are believed to have occurred between Saturday night and Sunday morning, August 5 and 6, 2023.

The glass pane in the door of one school bus and the driver’s side window of another bus parked for the weekend on an allotment in Court Street in Foster were smashed, in what the police spokesperson said, “appears like an act of vandalism”.

During the same night, as yet unknown offenders broke into two sports clubs located at the John Terrill Memorial Park in Fish Creek; the Fish Creek Bowls Club, and the Fish Creek Football Netball Club.

The police spokesperson said the doors and door frames at the points of entry to both facilities were damaged, as were security cameras in the Football Netball Club.

“It’s believed that nothing was stolen from the Bowls Club, and at this stage we’re still determining as to whether anything is missing from the Football Netball Club,” they said.

“The two break-ins at Fish Creek are possibly connected to each other, however we’re considering the bus matter at Foster to be a separate incident.”

Police officers in a Victoria Police Crime Scene Services van examined the two sports clubs and the buses on Sunday August 6.

The police spokesperson appealed to any members of the public who may have information about any of the three incidents to contact Crime Stoppers Victoria on 1800 333 000 or
