DETECTIVES investigating a spate of break-ins this week at a Peebles business park are appealing for information.

A total of nine premises at Cavalry Park were entered overnight from Monday into Tuesday.

Amongst the stolen goods was a quantity of hairdressing stock.

Although nothing was taken from six of the targetted businesses, there was still damage caused to the properties.

A spokeswoman for Police Scotland told us: "Detectives want to reassure local business owners that a robust investigation is currently underway into this."

The break-ins took place between 10pm on Monday and 6.30am on Tuesday.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting incident number 0538 of January 15, or report information anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
