Police officers in Tayside Division are making enquiry into a sneak-in theft which happened at the home of a 91 year old woman in the Muirton area of Perth.
A three figure sum of cash was stolen along with personal belongings sometime between Friday 12 June and Tuesday 16 June.
In appealing for witnesses Police Scotland would encourage householders to always think about their personal and home security. Residents are advised to lock front and back doors, as well as windows even when at home – during the day and overnight.
It’s also important to be a good neighbour – to look out for any suspicious activity in your community and report them to the police. Look out for others who live alongside you, particularly older or vulnerable neighbours. Ask if they need any help or require assistance to make their homes safer.
Keep an eye out for them, as well as a beady eye on anyone coming to their door. Report any suspicious activity in your area to the police.
Anyone with information that can help to trace the person responsible for the theft in the Muirton area should contact Tayside Division immediately on 101, or speak to any officer.
