Police are hunting vandals who smashed a life-saving defibrillator.
Cobden police Sergeant Heather Morris said two incidents on Monday night and the early hours of Tuesday might be linked.
She said an unknown number of offenders targeting the public defibrillator outside the Civic Hall in Victoria Street after 10pm on Monday.
"The offenders removed the public defibrillator by breaking the case, removed the device before throwing it on the road where it smashed," she said.
"The damaged is believed to be about $2000."
In the early hours of Tuesday morning the Cobden and District Kindergarten was targeted.
"There has been damage to one door and the offenders gained entry to the kindergarten by breaking into another," Sergeant Morris said.
"It is unknown if any property has been stolen.
"Someone heard a female voice in the kindergarten around 4.30am.
"It appears both incidents are connected as they happened along the same street."
Police are appealing for any information via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Cobden Police on 5595 1550.
