Queensland couple Chris and Lyndell Deadman had their Go-Pro camera and a Sony HX70 video camera taken from their rented Toyota Estima in a motel property on Ulster St.

"What we're asking is that the people that have our property consider handing the SIM cards containing the footage, they're of no use to them but of great significance to us so please consider returning them to Police," she said.
Scene of Crime officer Sergeant Roger Coley said a tool suspected of being used to smash the quarter window was recovered in the finger prints were taken in the car.
Mr Coley said the Police would review the CCTV footage from the motel and would speak to people around the area.
He said the actions were "disappointing".
"Here we've had a family cross the Tasman to celebrate a wedding and then this happens.
"Imagine what they will be telling their friends back home about the Waikato, what does this say about how we treat visitors to our region?"
Mr Coley urge anyone with any information on the theft to contact him at the Hamilton Central Police Station on 07 858 6200.
