POLICE are appealing for information after two bags of groceries were snatched from the boot of a car in Selkirk.

The shopping bags were taken as groceries were being unloaded into a house in the town’s Victoria Crescent on the evening of Thursday, November 28.

The stolen groceries are valued at £44.

Officers are also attempting to trace a thief who broke into a house on the same street the following Monday (December 2).

Anyone with information is asked to call Police Scotland on 101.
