Police are hunting for vandals who struck in Montrose smashing the windows of two shops in the town.
A property in High Street was targeted while a second business in nearby Murray Street was also damaged.
Police investigating the incidents say they occurred overnight between Friday February 18 and Saturday February 19.
Officers say that even though the damage was inflicted after trading hours both streets remain quite busy during the night.
Because of this they are now appealing for witnesses who may have seen the incidents to come forward.
