Kurri Kurri Sportsground has been broken into for the fourth time this year, leaving club volunteers increasingly frustrated.
The most recent incident happened on Wednesday night, when the perpetrator gained entry to the ground by cutting a one-metre hole in the fence behind the Old Boys’ Shed.
Old Boys committee member Chris Trow, who lives across the road from the ground, discovered the damage on Thursday.
The perpetrator has jimmied under one of the shed’s roller doors (which were padlocked to the ground), reached in and cut the padlock.
A set of two-way radio headphones (valued at about $3500) was taken.
Two whipper snippers and cords and a service pack for a ride-on mower are among the other items stolen from the ground in break-ins earlier this year.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
