APPEAL AFTER SHOPPERS' PURSES STOLEN IN KELSO

Police in the Scottish Borders are appealing for information and issuing a warning to shoppers following the theft of two purses in Kelso.

On Thursday 20th April, two women were buying goods within the Sainsbury's supermarket when their handbags were stolen from within their trollies.

Officers believe both of these incidents are believed to be linked and are conducting inquiries to trace those responsible.

Anyone with information is asked to come forward.

Constable Cara Pearson from Kelso Police Station said: "We are currently working with the store to view their CCTV and establish if we can identify the culprits.

"Any shoppers who were within the premises on Thursday 20th April and believe they saw anything suspicious should contact police immediately.

"We would also remind the public to take care with their possessions when shopping and ensure they do not leave any items of value unattended or in easy reach of would-be thieves.

"A range of crime prevention advice is available on our website at www.scotland.pnn.police.uk."

Those with information can contact the enquiry team via 101 and quote incident numbers 3150 or 3450 of the 20th April. Alternatively, a call can be made to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS CAR?

We are appealing for witnesses following a break-in to a shop in Musselburgh.

The incident occurred around 1am on Thursday 27th April at RS McColls in Delta Drive.

Entry was forced to the property and a quantity of cigarettes and alcohol were taken.

Officers are also looking to trace a Silver Mitsubishi Pajero with registration number N919 CVC, which was stolen a short time earlier from outside an address in Goose Green Crescent and believed to have been used during this incident.

The vehicle was last seen heading in the direction of the Newcraighall area through a field near to the Granada Services.

Detective Constable William Dickson from Dalkeith CID said:

“We are continuing to conduct enquiries into this break-in and are appealing for the public’s help as part of this.

“Officers are now appealing for anyone who was in the area around this time or seen anyone acting in a suspicious manner or saw the Mitsubishi Pajero, to please get in touch.”

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

APPEAL AFTER HIGH VALUE PAINTING STOLEN FROM EAST LINTON HOME

We are appealing for witnesses following a housebreaking at an address near Kippielaw Farm off Braeheads Loan, near East Linton.

The incident occurred between 5pm on Saturday 15th April and 2.45pm on Monday 24th April.

Entry was forced to the property and several paintings, including a high-value oil painting, were taken.

The work entitled "The Piper to the 2nd Marquess of Breadalbane" by J M BARCLAY dates from 1842 and is a 33” x 22” oil on canvas, valued in the region of £10,000.

Four of the other paintings taken were a black and gold Asian style design.

Local police are continuing with their enquiries and are asking anyone with information that may assist to come forward.

Community Inspector Andrew Hill from Haddington Police Station said:

"Based upon the specific nature of the property taken it is likely that this is a targeted theft. A vehicle would have been involved.

"The paintings stolen are all originals and very distinctive.

"Crimes such as this are fortunately rare, however, apart from the financial loss to the owner they also involve a loss of history and heritage.

"If anyone has information about suspicious activity in this area, or knowledge of where these works of art are now located, please get in touch."

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