1800kg coffee stolen

Thieves in Austria have made off with over 1800 kilograms of coffee worth more than $AU70 000.

According to local police, the offenders broke into the warehouse of a coffee-roaster and wholesaler east of Vienna, loaded a van with the coffee, along with two coffee machines, and sped off.

The culprits have not yet been caught.

Last week a man was arrested in Sydney when he stole the copper piping from the bottom of an industrial refrigerator, causing half a million dollars worth of damage to the food inside.

He was charged with break, enter and steal and is due to face Balmain local court on 20 April.
