Police in Levenmouth are investigating after a house in Whyterose Terrace, Methil was broken into in the early hours of Sunday morning (January 5).
The patio doors at the rear of the house were forced open sometime between 2.00 a.m. and 10.30 a.m. and a handbag and a wallet were stolen.
Inspector Donald Jenks from Police Scotland said: “Waking up to find that your house has been broken into is very distressing and not the start to a new year that anyone would want.
“Our investigations are at an early stage and we would appreciate any information that the public can give us in relation to this break-in.
“Were you in the area of Whytrose Terrace between 2.00 and 10.30 a.m. on Sunday morning? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously?
“Please give us a call on 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
