Wangaratta raids uncover $80K in stolen goods

At least $80,000 worth of stolen property, including 12 guns stashed at an old primary school, have been recovered in raids at Wangaratta and Cheshunt.

The property also includes five iPads swiped from Everton Primary School last Thursday and jewellery which had heirlooms. 

The mixture of high powered hunting rifles and farming firearms were allegedly stolen from a secured safe at a Chesthunt rural property on Tuesday. 

After a tip off, police found the unloaded guns at the primary school where they had been for up to three hours.

The further one was found at 11am Wednesday when a suspect led police to a hollowed out log.

It is believed the thefts took place over a three week crime spree targeting sports clubs and residential properties.

Two suspects have been charged and a further two questioned.
