Elderly women left shaken after raid on Dumfries home

Detectives in Dumfries are seeking witnesses following a report of a robbery in the town.

Around 1:30 AM this morning (14th June 2019), several men are reported to have broken into a rural property near to Cargenbridge.

Two women, aged 89 and 69 were within the property at the time and although they were uninjured, they were left shaken as a result.

At this stage it is thought that three men were involved and jewellery and cash were taken in the raid.

Detective Inspector Dean Little said “This type of crime is rare for Dumfries and Galloway and a team of detectives are now working on the case with a view of catching those responsible.

“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone that saw three men dressed in black in or around the area of Cargenbridge or Garden Wise on Castle Douglas Road during the early hours of this morning. Likewise we would be keen to hear about any strange vehicles which might have been seen entering or leaving, or even parked up in the area.

“We are also reviewing CCTV footage from cameras in the area, and any dash cam footage which anyone has while driving in the area at that time would be welcomed. Callers can contact Police Scotland on the 101 number, and should quote the reference number 0192 of 14/6.”
