A PUBLIC phone box worth $10,000 has been stolen in a bizarre incident at Bellbridge. 

The entire Telstra box was unbolted from its concrete base near the Hume Boat Club some time between 5pm Saturday and 7am Monday. 

The theft could be linked to an attempted break-in at the town’s general store on Murray Place during the same period. 

Wodonga police are keen to speak to anyone who saw someone near the phone box, or driving nearby with a trailer.
