Two thieves raided a West Lothian off-licence after a failed attempt on a nearby shop.

Detectives are appealing for information after the break-in at a licensed premises in Livingston.

They are also carrying out enquiries into an attempted break-in at a business nearby a short time earlier.

The attempted break-in happened shortly after 12am on Thursday, November 24 at a business on Jackson Place, where an unsuccessful attempt was made to gain entry.

The break-in happened at licensed premises on Carmondean Centre Road around 1am on the same date.

Entry was forced to the property and two till drawers were stolen, although neither contained any cash.

Officers are seeking to identify two men, both of whom were wearing black jackets and black gloves.

One was wearing black trousers and the other dark blue jeans.

Detective Sergeant Keith Sinclair said: “We are treating these two incidents as linked and would urge anyone with information which may help our investigation to come forward.

“We would be keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity around the area or who may have dashcam or private CCTV footage.

“If you can help please call 101 quoting reference 0118 of 24 November, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
