“Some cases involve entry being forced but often we find properties that have been left insecure are targeted.
“Double checking that your home is securely locked is essential to prevent you being the next victim of crime. I would also urge people to watch out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours and family members, providing assistance and help to them where possible”
“Should you notice any suspicious activity around your property you can call Police Scotland on 101 or 999 in an emergency.”
