DETECTIVES in Moray are appealing for information after a housebreaking in Elgin yesterday.
The incident took place in the Hamilton Drive area and is believed to have happened between 8.30am and 1.30pm.
Thousands of pounds worth of items, including jewellery, were stolen.
Detective Sergeant Scott McKay said: "This incident took place during the daytime, on a residential street, therefore it is highly likely someone has seen the person or people responsible in the area at the time.
"I would therefore like to appeal for any witnesses to come forward, whether you have seen the crime or simply people acting suspicious nearby.
"I am also appealing for anyone in the area with CCTV to come forward and contact the police. This includes doorbell cameras and vehicle dashcams.
"As we continue to carry out a number of enquiries in relation to this crime, residents may notice an increased police presence in the area, as we carry out additional patrols."
Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident 1919 of February 13. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, if you wish to remain anonymous.
