WARRNAMBOOL'S $2 Plus Shop has been broken into again.
The Liebig Street premises were burgled early Sunday morning and an article appeared in Tuesday's paper requesting public assistance to help identify a man loitering outside the shop on Saturday afternoon.
Detective Senior Constable Damian Coutts, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said about 2.45am on Tuesday entry was again forced into the premises through the rear door.
"There has been evidence located at the scene which indicates the offender may have injured himself," he said.
"This is a low act, it's despicable. The commission of the offence was exactly the same and we believe the same offender is involved," he said.
The second break-in only netted the offender a small amount of cash.
Detective Senior Constable Coutts had on Monday sought public assistance to identify a burglar seen loitering outside the Liebig Street shop just before closing time at 4pm on Saturday.
The shop was broken into about 1.45am Sunday morning after a brick was used to smash a glass panel of a door.
Once inside the building the burglar went to a filing cabinet, forced it open and removed an undisclosed amount of cash.
Detective Senior Constable Coutts said police were now in a position to release images of the man captured on security camera footage.
The offender is described as being about 40 years old, of medium build, wearing a dark coat with hoodie over his head, light blue jeans, white sneakers and black gloves.
Anyone with information about the identity of the man is requested to contact the Warrnambool police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
