Police ‘small change’ appeal follows museum theft

The police have made appeals in relation to a ‘housebreaking and theft’ which was discovered at the Shetland Museum on Friday.

They are urging shopkeepers, licensees and business owners to be aware of anyone trying to pay for items using an unusually large amount of small change.

Likewise, retailers are urged to report if anyone has attempted to pay for anything using any sort of foreign currency.

Detective sergeant Bruce Peebles said: “If anyone has any knowledge or information regarding the identity of persons trying to conduct any such transactions or obviously regarding the identity of the person responsible for the break-in, they are urged to contact the police on 101.

“Information can be left anonymously if need be and also via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
