A man has been charged over a string of property offences at cafes and pizza shops in the Lockyer Valley and Moreton Bay regions.

The man is accused of breaking into more than 20 businesses and causing significant damage, while also trying to take cash from safes and ATMs.

Police say the offences happened at shops in Lockyer Valley, Moreton Bay and Brisbane’s north, including at North Lakes, Kallangur, Nundah, Boondall, Aspley, Strathpine, Gatton, Newport and Warner.

Detectives executed a search warrant on a Kallangur property yesterday, when a number of items – including tools – suspected of being used during the break ins were seized.

A 29-year-old Kallangur man has been charged with 30 offences and has been denied bail in the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court today.

He is due back in court next month.
