Police in Inverness are hunting burglars behind a series of break-ins at care homes in the city.

Officers are appealing for information on the three incidents overnight between Tuesday evening and yesterday morning.

The break-ins were reported at Cameron House in Culduthel Road, Kinmylies Lodge Care Home in Kinmylies Way and Highview House Care Home in Scorguie Avenue.

Nothing was stolen from Highview House Care Home but a sum of cash worth around £700 in total was stolen from the other two businesses.

Detective Sergeant Graeme Johnstone, of Inverness CID, said: "Targeting care homes in this way is a particularly cruel act and extensive enquiries are ongoing to identify whoever is responsible.

"We believe all three incidents are linked and enquiries have established that a grey Audi S5 car was seen in each area overnight.

"We would urge anyone who may have seen this vehicle, who has dashcam footage or any other information which may help enquiries, to come forward as soon as possible."

Anyone with any information is urged to either call 101, quoting incident 0040 of Wednesday, June 3, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
