HOLIDAYMAKERS returned from their break to find their house ransacked – with jewellery, electrical goods and their car keys stolen.

The raid happened in Stoneybank Road, Musselburgh, between February 22 and March 1, and police are now appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Officers are also investigating a break-in in the town’s Clayknowes Court around 7pm on Thursday, however nothing was stolen.

Inspector Andrew Harborow from Tranent Police Station said: “At this time we are conducting inquiries to establish if both of these housebreakings are linked.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101.
