Appeal following housebreaking in North Berwick

Published 26 August 2019

Police in North Berwick are appealing for information after a housebreaking on York Road on the 21st of August.


The incident took place around 3am, during which time two cars were stolen, a grey Audi RS6 estate registration number G2 SUD and a black Land Rover Defender registration number G1 SUD.


Nine distinctive wrist watches valued in excess of £85,000 were also taken during the theft.


Detective Inspector Ben Leathes of Musselburgh CID said, “There has been a significant quantity of valuable items stolen during this incident and the victim is understandably, distraught.


“All the watches taken are of high value and are very distinctive, as is the Land rover Defender which has had a significant amount of body customisation carried out.


“We believe the vehicles may have been parked up somewhere in East Lothian after the incident, before being driven into the Edinburgh area during the evening of the 21st of August.


“We would urge anyone who may have seen the vehicles or who may have any information about this incident, to get in touch as a matter of urgency.”
