Help sought

Police are seeking information after a butchery was broken into and truck tyres slashed in Milton early yesterday.

Constable Will Pentelow, of Milton, said the front window of Tiny's Butchery in Union St was smashed about 1am. Nothing was taken. Around the same time, someone slashed the tyres of a flatbed truck in an Eden St yard, Const Pentelow said.

The offender also attempted to break into vehicles in the yard, and tried to drag a heavy-duty electrical cable down the road. There was several hundred dollars' worth of damage. Anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious is asked to contact the Milton police on 417-8203.
