Detectives are investigating four commercial burglaries on the Mornington Peninsula in which thieves raided two post offices, a hairdresser and a Reject shop over three nights.

Detective Sergeant Jason Hocking, of Somerville CIU, said two men used a sledgehammer to break into Dromana Post Office and steal 15 mobile phones valued at $7000, 2.50am, Wednesday 19 February.

The same offenders are believed to have stolen 34 mobile phones valued at $8000 from the Rosebud Post Office, 1.30am, Saturday 22 February. The phones at both post offices range in price from $99 to $350.

Soon after the second post office raid the men are believed to have forced their way into a Reject shop on Nepean Highway where they managed to only get away with soft drinks.

Twenty minutes later they smashed the door of Silk Hair Design, in Bay Road, Mount Martha, and stole an $1800 Apple Mac computer, $200 cash and several hair straighteners valued at $1000.

The men, one wearing a Lonsdale windcheater, cap and shorts, and the other a black hoodie, black pants and runners, were seen driving a small, white car. Detectives are investigating whether this was the same car found burnt out at Seaford soon after the robberies.
