Police are continuing to investigate a number of similar incidents within the Threemiletown and Winchburgh area recently and anyone with information relating to these offences is asked to come forward.

Detective Sergeant David Black of the Community Investigation Unit said “Tackling housebreaking and acquisitive crime remains a priority in West Lothian.

“Opportunistic criminals will look to take advantage of this time of year, when homes are filled with expensive gifts and other items and so I would urge members of the public to ensure that their homes, outbuildings and vehicles are kept secured at all times.
