THIEVES used an angle grinder to break into two stores in Euroa’s Binney Street early Sunday morning.

Police say the break-ins at the Binney Street Lolly Shop and Euroa Grace and Glamour, the hairdresser next door, happened at about 4am.

It followed a similar attack at the take away shop, Stacia’s Place, two doors up a week earlier.

Police say in all, the thieves stole more than $1000 in cash and about $500 worth of products.

Mitchell Crime Scene investigator Leading Senior Constable Michelle Norris said the thieves used an angle grinder and a blow torch to break in through the back door of the lolly shop.

“They had their work cut out because these big old doors are hard to cut through,” Leading Snr Const Norris said.
