Someone has destroyed an expensive metal sign outside his business and now he is offering a $500 reward for information leading to their arrest.
After dropping his children off at school one morning last week, he drove by the holiday rental units in Vaimaanga only to see his expensive aluminium sign lying on the ground.
Hopping out to investigate, he found the metal had been ripped right through after someone had torn it off the steel frame the sign had been bolted to, mounted high up on a pole.
“I’m sick of people just breaking and stealing and stuff,” he says.
“The sign was pretty strong – it’s aluminium both sides and it was bolted with big nuts on to a steel frame.
“It would not have been just one pull; it would have taken a few to weaken the aluminium to be able to break that off.”
Roussow says he has experienced break-ins at his home in the past, as well as thefts from his car.
“One time they stole my wife’s computer,” says Roussow.
“We never used to lock our stuff,” he adds. “But people get into our cars and take stuff out of there.”
Roussow’s hope is that the reward might tempt someone into offering up information about the culprit.
If anyone has any information about his vandalised sign, Roussow says they can call him on 57894 or contact the police.
