Police are warning shop owners to ensure their money is safely hidden after a Green Island cafe was burgled early this morning.
Between 4.30am and 5.50am a storeroom at Agnes Cafe was broken into in order to gain access to the main shop, and cash was stolen.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said police were unsure of the amount taken, but that shop owners should exercise caution when it came to their money.
"Keep money in a secure safe ideally.''
Police asked anyone who saw anything suspicious to call.
Information could be shared with Dunedin Police on (03) 471 4800 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
