Burglars break in five shops, steal cash in Miriam Vale

A CRIME spree in Miriam Vale on Sunday night has left local police furious.

Burglars forced open the doors of five shops in the Miriam Vale CBD after 9pm and stole cash.

Miriam Vale officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Owen Harms said he was upset it had happened in such a good community.

"Police are very disappointed offenders have targeted our town and we will leave no stone unturned," he said.

"We request anyone who saw persons or a vehicle in the CBD or the vicinity late on Sunday night to call the police or Crime Stoppers."

Owner of Cup and Saucer Coffee Shop, Liz Yeoman said her shop was broken into.

"I can't fathom that it has happened in Miriam Vale," she said.

"Thank God for CCTV because we will catch whoever did this."

Snr Sgt Harms said nothing like this had ever happened in Miriam Vale before.

"The CBD is normally quiet at the time and someone must have seen something," he said.

"We are reviewing CCTV footage and have our forensic team on the job.

"We will find out who did this, it is just a matter of time."
