Umina Café Owner Calls Out CCTV Problem After Another Break-In

More than 30 in four years’ trade

Umina Café Owner Calls Out CCTV Problem After Another Break-In

The owner of a Umina Beach cafe's been left devastated after waking up to yet another break-in.

Police alerted Gabby Greyem to the fact the Jasmine Greens Park Kiosk had been smashed into this morning, with cash and stock taken.

She hit Facebook heartbroken this morning to show shock pics of broken glass, announcing the lost day of trade.

She says she's been hit more than 30 times in the past four years and the building was graffitied just last week.

“With this much of a physical attack on my business, I’m feeling really beaten down actually,” Ms Greyem said.

“I’m struggling to want to go back to work at this stage.”




Ms Greyem's hit out at her landlord, Central Coast Council, claiming CCTV cameras in the area are not currently working.

“It’s really disappointing, with every break-in over this four year period, police have been unable to get footage from the CCTV cameras on our building and from the park around the building,” she said.

"There were technicians working on the cameras two days in a row after last week’s graffiti incident.

“We’ve had up to six visits a week from technicians over different periods of time.”

The Peninsula Recreational Precinct at Umina Beach was named among a string of other Coast spots set to benefit from a $47,000 federal government grant for CCTV cameras last month.

They have yet to be installed.

Central Coast Council has been approached for comment.
