Do you know the muffin man?

SALE police are seeking information regarding a break-in to Gippsland Centre, Sale, early Tuesday morning.

At 2.15am a masked man forced open the Cunninghame St entry to the centre, making a beeline for Muffin Break, where he stole a safe.

The thief then attempted to break into Bows Natural Ice Cream, causing some damage, before fleeing.

The Muffin Break safe was recovered empty, outside of the centre.

People with information are being urged to phone Sale police on 5142 2200 or report anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A MAN has been charged over a spate of commercial burglaries in Sale earlier this month.

No property has been recovered.
