POLICE are investigating reports of attempted thefts from a new cake fridge on St Olaf Street in Lerwick.
The first is said to have taken place at around 11pm on Thursday (26 September), with the second at about 4am the following day.
The cake fridge, named Something Sweet, was locked at the time and the incidents were captured on CCTV. It only opened a couple of weeks ago.
The owners said there was “small damage” to the fridge, which reopened slightly later than usual today (Friday).
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or knows anyone who was in the area is encouraged to contact Lerwick Police station on 101.
