Police are appealing for information following a break-in at the Chirnside Inn in the early hours of Monday, February 27.

Between 12.50am and 1.50am an offender forced entry to the pub and stole a three figure sum of cash. They are described as around 6 foot 4 inches tall with a large nose, wearing dark tracksuit bottoms with a stripe down the leg, a dark hooded top with the hood up, a dark jacket and possibly gloves.

Detective Constable Callum Peoples said: “It is particularly concerning for local people when one of their community facilities is targeted in this way. I want to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area early this morning, or has information on the person responsible.”
