Gretna po­lice wit­ness plea

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - INTIMATIONS -

House­hold­ers in Annandale and Eskdale are be­ing ad­vised to be on their guard after a num­ber of house break-ins re­cently.

A house in Bens­moor Road, Spring­field, was raided be­tween 6pm and 11.50pm on Tues­day.

The thieves broke into the prop­erty while the pen­sioner who lived there was away. They made off with cash and a 32 inch TV.

PC Jim Bell is ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have seen or heard any­thing sus­pi­cious in the area on Tues­day night to call 101.

He said: “Dur­ing the time that the el­derly house­holder was out of the house a break-in has taken place. The house ap­pears to have been searched through and the tele­vi­sion and cash taken. The house is in a row of four houses and we are car­ry­ing out door to door en­quiries in the area.”

It fol­lows a break-in last week­end at four va­cant cot­tages on the Balgray Es­tate at Locker­bie when items in­clud­ing wood burn­ing stones and a hot wa­ter cylin­der were stolen.
