Cleaning Mate van/ phone stolen
We had an eventful start to the weekend yesterday. One of our technician's had gone for a job at Clarence Road Indooroopilly. He forgot to get the cleaning chemical while shifting the carpet cleaning machine so he came back to collect the chemical from the van parked next to the building. It was a day when he decided to forget more than remember. He took the chemical but he left his iphone, some of his documents and the car key in the van. Someone was observing him we reckon as the thief was just waiting for this opportunity. The vehicle was stolen from the place it was parked. He drove the vehicle for about 2.5 km and abandoned it near the road which we were monitoring on track my ride. He searched the entire vehicle took the technician's iphone with him and threw the keys somewhere. The police team are doing the forensic investigation to try and nab the culprit. The experience was very disturbing as it was not just about loosing the van, it caused lot of inconvenience for the customers. The least he could have done was to leave the keys behind in the car. We did not have spare key and the keys needed to be changed. We could not use the vehicle the whole day and our technicians had to work overtime and were hard pressed for time to even grab some lunch. Our thought regarding the thief is why the arrogance to throw the keys, he not only stole the phone but delayed our service. Wonder if he was a customer and it was some emergency service would he not be annoyed? On a positive note we thank our Clarence Road customer for informing the police immediately and the concern shown by them. The van is back but the service was disrupted.
