Group member Bernie Smith went to the scout hall, located on the corner of Shoalhaven and Jervis Streets, on Tuesday at 10.30am and discovered the ride-on-lawn mower had been stolen.

To get the bright red mower, thieves had to break into the heavily secured shipping container.

“They would have needed tools to break into the container,” Mr Smith said.

The ride-on, valued at over $3000, had only been used once.

The key to the ride-on was not in the ignition when it was stolen.

Camping gear was also taken.

Thieves and vandals have regularly targeted the hall over the years.

Mr Smith said they were now looking to get a grant for some fencing to go around the hall.

People with information should contact Nowra Police on 4421 9699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
