Police appeal over Christmas theft and vandalism

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to come forward after two break-ins in the north of Lerwick over Christmas.

A caravan at Hoofields was broken into between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on Christmas Day and numerous items, including a Playstation 3 games console, two laptops, an iPad, three external hard drives and a selection of computer games, were stolen.

Meanwhile, Staney Hill Hall at Ladies Drive was broken into and vandalized. Tills and cupboard doors were forced open, and significant damage was caused – including the shattering of the community group’s large flatscreen television.

A police spokesman said: “The break in was discovered this morning [Thursday] by a group hoping to host a Boxing Day party. Police are keen to speak to anyone with knowledge of either incident, or [who] saw any person acting suspiciously in the areas described.

“Police would also like to hear from any person who has recently taken receipt of any of the described property.”

Anyone with information can contact Police Scotland by dialling 101.
