BURGLARS smashed their way into Portland’s Percy Street newsagency early yesterday morning.

Detective Sergeant Steve Brown, of the Portland police crime investigation unit, said offenders disabled a rear sensor light before forcing their way through the rear door, in the process breaking the lock.

“The offenders have stolen a small amount of cash, stolen and moved a safe but the safe was undamaged,” he said.
