A Cooriemungle home has been broken into and trashed for the second time in two months.
Police said offenders broke into a Princetown Road house in Cooriemungle between 5pm on August 28 and 3pm on September 2.
Detective Senior Sergeant Richard Hughes, of the Warrnambool Criminal Investigation Unit, said offenders entered a shed and forced their way into the house by smashing through a plaster wall with a metal bar.
He said the offenders then used the bar to smash several walls, windows, doors and cupboards.
“They’ve also smashed the shower, bathrooms tap, stove top and lighting fittings,” Senior Sergeant Hughes said.
“The offenders have then exited the same way they entered.”
Senior Sergeant Hughes said nothing appeared to be stolen from the property.
“It is the second burglary in this residence, with the first believed to have been carried out similar to this incident,” he said.
“It appears to be a targeted attack by offenders who knew their way around the home.”
Senior Sergeant Hughes said the first incident occurred on July 18.
Warrnambool police are also investigating an unrelated burglary in Crawley Street.
Senior Sergeant Hughes said the premises, which is in the process of being renovated, was broken into between 9pm on August 27 and 11pm August 31.
He said offenders entered the premises and stole bed linen and quilt covers, an oil heater and an NBN modem.
The items are valued at about $300.
