An appeal has been launched after a Mercedes was stolen from a house following a break-in in West Calder.

Officers were called to a property on Blinkbonny Gardens, Breich, following the raid which occurred between 1am and 7am on Sunday.

A black Mercedes B180 car was stolen from the driveway. 

Police are investigating the robbery and have urged for any witnesses to come forward.

Detective constable Sam Plastow of Livingston CID said: “Enquiries into this incident are ongoing and I would ask that anyone who lives in the area or who has information about suspicious behaviour contact Police.

“We are eager to hear from anyone in the area who has CCTV, dash-cam or doorbell cameras to check their footage for anything that may assist Police. 

“Although the property was secure, I would like to remind homeowners to be vigilant and ensure that doors and windows are locked overnight. As we come into summer months, any windows left ajar for ventilation should not be left unattended. 

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Livingston Criminal Investigation Department on 101, quoting incident 983 of June 12. Alternatively information can be passed anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
