The Border Mail reported that a break in occurred at the Beechworth Information Centre over the weekend where laptops and cash were stolen, as well as a small amount of damage.

Figures published revealed an increase of 70% in burglary and break-ins, with a total of 37 in 2018, to 63 ending march 2019.
