Borders and Lothian Police are appealing for witnesses following a number of break-ins and thefts.

The offences occurred between 07.30am and 4.45pm on Wednesday February 18.

Police say that entry was forced into three homes, one of which took place in Coldingham and the other two at properties in the Eyemouth area.

Items stolen from the three properties included a three-figure sum of cash in foreign currency as well as various pieces of gold and silver jewellery, some of which is engraved.

Officers are currently treating these incidents as linked.

They are eager to trace anyone who was seen acting suspiciously in Coldingham and in the Eyemouth area during this time.

Detective Constable Chris Bisland said: “We are urging anyone who may have further information about these thefts, or who knows where the stolen items are, to come forward.”

Detective Constable Bisland went on: “Anyone with private CCTV in the local area is also urged to contact police as they may be able to assist us with our enquiries.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101, the non-emergency number, or alternatively to telephone the Crimestoppers line, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
