When the homeowners returned they discovered that their property had been entered and a four-figure sum of money was missing.
Detective Constable Callum Peoples told the Hawick News: “The victims are obviously very upset as a result of this invasion of their home and the theft of their money, and we are conducting various local inquiries to identify those responsible.
