A POLICE investigation is under way after more than £6,000 of goods were stolen from a new housing development.

Construction work is ongoing at Cranston Way, on the western edge of Haddington.

However, the site has repeatedly been targeted by thieves, with community ward police officer Lynn Black informing the town’s community council on Tuesday about the latest incident, on May 21.

She said: “There is a report of a housebreaking to two Persimmon homes under construction at Cranston Way overnight where the following items had been stolen: £1,800 kitchen worktops, £1,000 fitted radiator, £600 toilet pan and cisterns, £600 wash basins and two pedestals, 25 internal doors valued at £1,000, £200 thermostat controller, £1,200 worth of tools and a £150 shower tray.”

It is not the first time thefts from the site have been highlighted at the community council meeting.

At the group’s April meeting, a report was given of house keys for a newbuild house on the site having been stolen from the site office on March 23.

A property was then entered and a new washer dryer, worth about £900, was stolen.

Prior to that a hob and cooker, worth £250, were stolen from the same development on February 13.

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
