£3000 Cash Stolen From House – Lockerbie

Police Scotland officers at Lockerbie are seeking help in relation to a break-in to a house which happened sometime between 0815 hours and 1055 hours on Friday 27 January 2017.
The house, which sits just off the B7068 Lockerbie to Langholm road about two miles out of the town was only empty for about two and a half hours. At this stage it appears that a large sum of cash and an I pad have been stolen. The total value is around £3000.

Constable David Noble at Lockerbie said “this break-in took place over a very short period of time while the house was empty and the occupants out. Colleagues at Annan had a similar theft to a rural property, again in a short window of opportunity at the start of this month. We are keen to hear from anyone who may have been on the Lockerbie to Langholm road on Friday morning. We want to hear about any suspicious activity or any unusual vehicle movements in that area. We would like to hear from anyone who may have been along this road to get in touch with any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem to them , it might just be the missing piece in our jigsaw which will help catch those responsible. Again we remind the public to call us at any time on the 101 number if they see something in their community which seems a bit odd, suspicious, or just not right. That will allow us to attend in good time and check the issue out, and if it turns out to be a false alarm then no harm done.”
