Five reported incidents took place overnight on June 5-6 from vehicles parked in the Queens Road, Gunsgreen Crescent, Brown’s Bank and Buss Craig Place areas.

The vehicles were all entered and power tools were taken. Stolen items include drills, battery amps, angle grinders and multi-tools, which have an estimated five-figure sum value.

Inquiries are ongoing and anyone with information is asked to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Callum Peoples from Galashiels CID said: “This has been a brazen theft of tools from tradespeople who need this equipment to carry out their jobs. Those responsible have taken away the ability for the victims to work, which they rely on for their livelihoods.”
