They stole $200 worth of tools before fleeing the scene.

Thieves then broke into The Telstra Shop in Hare St between 6.10am and 6.30am on Saturday where they stole four mobile display phones, worth $1500.

Sizzarz hair salon in Nish St was also broken into on Sunday night.

It is unknown if anything was stolen.
