WITH an almost limitless array of tools to choose from, bungling thieves have left the Bunnings store at Belmont empty handed this morning after failing to break into a change safe.
Police said the burglars may have spent up to 40 minutes inside the warehouse after breaking in about 3am attempting to gather something for their work.
They had targeted a safe carrying the store’s change.
But despite using an angle grinder, a crowbar and a sledgehammer, they were forced to leave without a cent.
Information should be forwarded to Lake Macquarie police or Crime Stoppers.
