THIEVES have stolen two cars from an Ayr home.

The burglars made off with a silver Toyota Avensis and red Toyota Aygo from Bellevue Road in the early hours of Saturday morning (June, 20).

Police are now on the hunt for the culprits who struck between 1.30am and 8am.

Community safety officer Jamie Dunlop said: “We are appealing for witnesses who may have noticed people acting suspiciously around the location. If so we ask that they call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.” PC Dunlop also advised residents who have sash windows to take measures to deter burglars.

He said: “We would urge people to consider the use of sash locks, which are very effective for security.” He also advised lock-up owners to look at additional security after a spate of recent break-ins.

He added: “If anyone is looking for security advice regarding lock-ups or sash windows, please contact the local police office.”
