Have your say

A THIEF is being hunted after items were stolen from a kitchen in a sheltered housing complex.

The man broke in through an unlocked window and took items from the property in Loch Square, Tranent, at around 4.30am last Friday.

He was seen by an elderly, disabled resident before making off in the direction of Blawearie Road.

Inspector Andrew Harborow said: “This was a despicable act which has upset the elderly lady and the other residents at this sheltered housing complex. I am appealing for anyone who has any information to call the police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
