Police are appealing for witnesses after a spate of housebreakings this month in the East Lothian area.

Five homes were broken into in Gullane between March 14-19 - on Erskine Road, Marine Road, West Links Road and Nisbet Road. Stolen items included televisions and other electric goods.

A home on Seton Mains, Longniddry was also broken into between these dates, while a home on Campbell Road, Longniddry was broken into on 18th March.

Local officers are now asking anyone who can assist with their enquiries to come forward, particularly if they notice anything suspicious in these areas. They are also urging residents to ensure their properties are suitably protected against criminal activity.

Detective Inspector Robert Brown from Police Scotland said: “These incidents are all being investigated as part of Operation RAC and anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around homes in these areas in the past week is asked to contact police immediately.
