The cash was stolen out of the gambling machines that were in the Hopwood Sports and Social Club during this break in, Lesley Hickson who is the manager of the club stated that is was a pure act of vandalism.
Lesley stated that when she arrived at the club and entered it was a mess, everyone who works here was in shock, but there really is not a lot that you are able to do.
