Jewellery and cash have been stolen from two properties in the Elgin area.

A sum of cash and a quantity of jewellery was stolen from a house on Duncan Drive in the town between 2.30pm and 6.30pm on Friday.

A second property in the Fairfield Avenue was targeted between 2.15pm and 6.30pm on Monday.

Jewellery and cash were stolen from this property also.

Inquiry officer PC David Leil said: “These incidents have happened during day light hours or during the early evening in built up residential areas. I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and might have seen anything unusual or suspicious to get in touch.

“The owners have naturally been upset by the incident and we are carrying out additional patrols in the area. Anyone with information is asked to speak to any officer, phone 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
