POLICE are hoping people in the Tresta area can help them with their enquiries following a report that a person or several persons forced entry to a building in the village before rummaging through various rooms between Wednesday last week (20 November) and Friday (29 November).
It is believed that a group of youths from the nearby area could potentially be behind the unauthorised entry to the property, police said.
A spokesman said: “Any local residents or passers-by are urged to phone in with any information. The incident number when contacting police is PS-20191130-2134.”
Police can be contacted by either phoning the non-emergency number 101 and by calling along Lerwick police station
