Police have issued a warning after two incidents in the early hours of this morning in Dundee.
An intruder was disturbed trying to break in to two different properties in the Perth Road/Roseangle area. Police believe the incidents are linked.
Firstly, at around 2.45am, a man was disturbed trying to get in through a window at an address in Perth Road.
Secondly, at around 3.30am, an intruder had entered an address in Westfield Place and ran off towards Perth Road. He had removed items from a drawer and was preparing to leave with them, but left empty-handed.
The person disturbed at Westfield Place is described as a white male, slim build and unshaven, wearing a baseball cap and a dark jacket, carrying a rucksack and another white bag.
A police statement said: “We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone in the area to make sure your doors and windows are closed and locked, particularly at night.
“It takes literally seconds for someone to get into your home and rummage through a room. The harder you make it for them, the more likely they will leave your property alone.
“If you have any information that could assist our enquiries, please call 101 or speak to any police officer.
“Also, information can be given anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. Our reference is CR/1801/19.”
