Police are appealing for information after a gas canister was thrown through the window of an antiques shop.
The incident took place at around 8.30pm on Monday at the shop on Townhead, Auchterarder.
A three-figure sum worth of damage was caused to the building’s exterior by the canister that landed inside the shop.
Police say it appears likely that someone arrived either in a vehicle or on foot shortly and deliberately threw the canister.
Officers are now appealing for witnesses.
A spokesman said: “If you have any information that could assist our investigation, please call 101 or speak with any police officer.”
