A FIVE-FIGURE sum of cash has been stolen from a Dunbar home after a break-in, police have confirmed.

Police in East Lothian are appealing for information after a high-value housebreaking in the Wilson Road area of Dunbar.

The incident happened between 5pm and 6.30pm last Thursday at Wilson Road.

As well as the five-figure sum of cash, traditional jewellery was also stolen in the break-in.

The suspects are described as a group of three to five males who may have been in the area at an earlier date.

Police have been conducting door-to inquiries but would be keen to speak to anyone who was in the area or may have noticed anything suspicious.

Sergeant Declan Hogg of the Community Investigation Unit at Musselburgh said: “We believe this property may have been targeted deliberately and we are keen to hear from anyone who saw a group of males in the area around this time on Thursday, January 11.

“We’re particularly interested in any information on a light-coloured saloon and a dark-coloured Audi seen in the area of Wilson Road at that time.

“Similarly if anyone has been offered unusual-looking jewellery for sale we would be keen to hear from you.”

Call police on 101 or report information anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting incident number 3305 of January 11.
