A SUM of cash has been stolen from a Kelso home.

The incident happened sometime between 2am and 3am on Sunday, March 11 at an address in James Dickson Place.

A small sum of cash was stolen from the property and inquiries are ongoing to trace the culprit.

Police believe someone was trying the handles of a number of car and house doors prior to the incident. Anyone who can help identify the individual is asked to come forward.

They are described as white, around 5ft 9ins tall with a medium build and wearing a dark hooded top with the hood up, a garment covering their face and carrying a large dark rucksack.

Constable Craig Hood from Kelso Police Station said: "Given the time these incidents occurred, and the efforts made to disguise their appearance, the witnesses we have spoken to so far have been unable to confirm if the suspect was male or female.

"However, we believe they had been in James Dickson Place for some time and someone may have gotten a better look at them.

"If you believe you saw this person, or witnessed any other suspicious activity in the area then please contact police immediately."
