A CAR has been stolen from a home in Haddington.

Police for witnesses following the break-in, as well as another one in Bonnyrigg.

Electrical goods and a Lexus NX 300H car were stolen from a home on Eskbank Road, Bonnyrigg, last Friday evening and the car was later involved in a police chase before being found abandoned in Woodburn Park, Dalkeith, with all of the stolen items inside.

A second break-in then occurred sometime between 8pm on Saturday and 10.30am on Sunday at an address on Knowsley Park, Haddington.

After entry was forced to the property, the keys to a dark blue Volkswagen Tiguan were stolen, before the car was then taken from outside the house.

The car, which has registration number SM66 LGU, has not yet been found and inquiries are ongoing to recover it and identify those responsible.

Detective Inspector Ben Leathes from Lothians and Scottish Borders CID said: "Both of these incidents are being investigated as part of Operation Greenbay, our ongoing initiative to tackle the theft of vehicles across the Lothians and Scottish Borders.

"As part of these inquiries I would ask that anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around Eskbank Road on Friday evening, or Knowsley Park on Saturday evening into Sunday morning, to contact police immediately.

"Likewise anyone with any other relevant information that can assist us, is also urged to come forward."
