Possible bogus callers reported in Berwickshire
Police in the Borders received two reports of possible bogus callers in the Berwickshire area last week.
During the first incident two men entered an open address in Coldstream offering items suspected to be fake Lakeland goods. The men had a good look around the property and enquired about how many people resided in the property.
In the second incident six men were going door to door in houses in Paxton.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We advise all residents in the Borders to ensure their house is secure at all times, don’t give anyone the opportunity to surprise you in your own home.
