Borders Police are appealing for witnesses following two break-ins to vehicles in the Eyemouth area.
The first incident occurred between 5:30pm on Sunday, January 25, and 7:30am on the Monday when a grey Mitsubishi Warrior parked on a street at The Crofts in Ayton was broken into. Three chainsaws worth a four-figure sum were removed.
The second incident took place between 4am and 6am on Monday, January 26, when a Citroen Jumper van, parked at the border lay-by on the northbound A1, was entered. Two boxes of cargo removed.
Anyone who can assist police with their enquiries is asked to come forward.
Inspector Keith Dougal said: “Police are keen to speak with anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in the area at around the time of these thefts.
“There have been a number of power tools taken from both vehicles so I would ask people to stay vigilant.
“Anyone with information that can help trace the culprit or culprits is asked to contact police immediately on 101 or alternatively the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
Police also urge the public to call 101 with any information on a VW car that had its body parts stripped and stolen overnight on Wednesday and Thursday, January 28 and 29 at the Border Mill Industrial Estate, Duns.
