Appeal After Double Car Theft

Police Scotland are appealing for information in response to a double car theft in Penicuik.

On Monday 26 September, police were called to an address off Mauricewood Park, in the north of the town, where the resident had reported the theft of a silver Volkswagen Golf and a silver Audi A6 estate.

The property had been unoccupied. It is understood that the suspects were able to gain access to the property before finding the vehicles’ keys and making off with them.

A second incident of car theft took place at an address in Glenesk Crescent, Eskbank, where a silver Citroen C1 was stolen.

Police Sergeant Michele Lindsay of Dalkeith Police Station said:

We are now appealing for information regarding both these housebreakings and would ask anyone with information to come forward.

We would also remind members of the public there are precautions you can take to ensure your property is safe while you’re on holiday, such as asking your neighbours if appropriate to keep an eye on your property, cancelling deliveries to your home, using timers on lights and if you have an alarm making sure it’s set.
All these measures can deter thieves and give you peace of mind while you are away on holiday.

If you know anything about these incidents, you are asked to contact the Police on 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
