SHOP owners were left devastated after several break-ins at the Mandurah Greenfields Shopping Centre yesterday morning.

Thieves used limestone blocks to smash their way into the cafe, the bakery, the hair dressing salon and the nail salon.

T6 Diner opened at the shopping centre three months ago.

Owner Stephen Bohan said the thieves grabbed everything they could see, including a big butcher’s knife.

Mr Bohan said the cafe alarm went off about 11.30pm on Tuesday night.

Greenfields Bakery owner Saskia Li said the break-in had left her devastated.

She said it cost her $850 for a new door so she was expecting her insurance premiums to go up.

Jacki Torr, from Ja Jah’s Hair Fashion, said the break-in made her upset and angry.

“We had to delay opening due to the forensics being here yesterday morning,” she said.

“So it’s the insurance and disruption to business [that is frustrating].”

Acting Senior Sergeant Anthony Nemeth said investigations were ongoing into multiple break-ins.

He urged anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
