Police in East Lothian are appealing for witnesses following a housebreaking in Dunbar.

The break-in took place between 6pm and 11pm on Monday 11 April in the Cromwell Court area.

Entry was gained via the rear of the property and a number of items stolen, including a white Toshiba laptop and a black Lenovo tablet.

A three-figure sum of cash, which included a quantity of change, and jewellery, estimated to be worth a four-figure sum, was also taken.

PC Scott Clark of Musselburgh’s Community Investigation Unit said: “Anyone with information about the whereabouts of these items is asked to contact police as soon as possible.

“If you purchase stolen items, knowingly or otherwise, they can be returned to their rightful owner meaning a financial loss to yourself.

“When purchasing items second-hand, always ensure that the owner can provide proof of purchase.

“Anyone who witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the area during the time of the break-in is also urged to get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
