Gang of four hunted by police

Police are hunting night-time raiders who have struck in the Borders, Midlothian and Edinburgh.

Peebles was the Borders target for the team who hit nine properties overnight on Thursday into Friday last week.

Some were unsuccessful but cash, mountain bikes, outdoor clothing and tools were stolen.

The gang of four are all between 5’ 10” and 6’ and wore dark clothing and hats. At several locations a silver Vauxhall Vectra was spotted.

A black Audi (R3GYM) stolen from Bilston has not yet been traced.

Police have appealed for assistance.
