Darwin business owner 'devastated' by robbery


A Darwin business owner says he's been left devastated following a brazen theft at his Winnellie car yard.

Early yesterday morning two thieves smashed their way into Darwin Auto Motors, before snatching a safe containing up to 25 sets of car keys.


"They put rocks through the glass first. Both of the safes are gone, including all this cash, around $16,000", the owner told Channel Nine.

CCTV cameras show the two offenders with their faces covered, grabbing one safe which weighs around 120 kilograms.


A message on the Darwin Auto Motors website says deliveries may be delayed and all cars will be reprogrammed.
