SECURITY is being ramped up at the Globe Hotel at Sebastopol after the sixth break-in at the Albert Street premises in eight months.In the latest raid, hundreds of dollars worth of alcohol was stolen after a storage shed at the rear of the hotel was broken into early yesterday morning.Stolen yesterday were two boxes containing 12 bottles each of Jim Beam Black and three full barrels of beer. The bottles of promotional bourbon came with a watch and were valued at $44 each, while the beer barrels were valued at more than $200 each.It is believed a roller door on the rear shed was jemmied open to gain entry about 1.30am yesterday. Police were reviewing security footage from a camera focussed on the shed.But the latest break-in has angered Globe Hotel owner Les Frost."I'm getting sick of the hotel being a target (for thieves). This is happening every two or three weeks and it's not only costing me in loss of stock, but now I have to replace the damaged roller door and smashed locks on the shed," Mr Frost said."It is also costing me thousands of dollars to increase my security."Mr Frost was yesterday afternoon in discussions with a security company to install more cameras inside and outside the hotel."It's a sad state of affairs when I have to put in more security, but I can't keep losing stock hand-over-fist," he said. "It's costing a fortune, but we have to protect ourselves by deterring these thieves."It's getting to the stage where we have to make about $500-a-week extra just to pay for the break-ins and thefts. That's even before we sell beer over the bar or a meal in the dining room. It's hard enough for a local pub to compete with the discounted prices at supermarkets or take-away places without having to deal with regular thefts."In recent months the hotel has been targeted six times, with windows being smashed and roller doors on the bottle shop jemmied open to gain entry. In one of the recent thefts, 12 bottles of top-shelf alcohol were stolen from the adjoining drive-through bottle shop. The thieves were caught in the act on a security camera, but the incident was still being investigated.Anyone with information about the Globe Hotel break-ins can contact Ballarat Police on 5336 6000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
