Police Scotland are appealing for information about three break-ins to properties in Angus yesterday morning, January 8, which are being treating as linked.
A man was disturbed attempting to break in to a house in Gagiebank, Wellbank, about 8:40am, having already broken into the garage at the property.
Police said he is described as white, about 5ft 8, and was wearing all-dark clothing.
A spokesman said: “Although a number of items had been moved in the garage it does not appear that anything has been stolen.
“He was seen to drive off in a pale blue coloured Citroen C3 which had been parked in the driveway of the house next door.
