A Locharbriggs shop has been broken into for the second time this month.

Police say they are investigating after the Premier Store on Auchencrieff Road South was targeted in the early hours of this morning.

The thieves fled empty handed.

"It might be the case that the alarm sounding forced the thieves to abandon their plans to rob the store. This is the second break-in this month, and on the previous occasion cigarettes were the target.

"We are carrying out door to door enquiries in the area and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything around this time.

"In particular we have a report about a moped heard driving up and down the street just prior to the break-in and are keen to hear from anyone who can help us identify the rider of that machine. Callers can speak to us at Dumfries on the 101 number."
