Police Scotland are appealing for information following several break-ins in Perthshire.
Detective Officers in Perth and Kinross are appealing for information following an attempted break in to a house in Campmuir at about 6pm on Monday (March 31), followed soon after by a break-in to a house in Myreriggs Road, Blairgowrie.
A further attempted break in also took place at a house in Farm Road, Gannochy, a short time later. During the course of these incidents, three men were disturbed and in the area and made off. They had been seen that evening in a silver-coloured, hatchback car.
Police Scotland would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and who saw or heard anything suspicious, particularly in relation to suspicious people or vehicles to contact them on 101, or speak to any officer.
Police in Perthshire are also investigating a number of thefts that happened in the Bridge of Tilt and Blair Atholl areas overnight from Monday, March 31, to Tuesday, April 1.
