POLICE are appealing for information after a bright blue laptop was taken during a house burglary yesterday (Weds).
The alleged break in happened in Pottington Road between 7.30am and 3pm.
A metallic blue Samsung laptop with silver lines on the lid were taken, as well as a bundle of £20 notes.
Police believe the thieves gained entry to the house by forcing the front door open and an untidy search was made of the property.
