The theft happened at around 7 pm on Tuesday May 26 when a man was seen running from the house in High Street and getting into a silver coloured car, which may have been a Renault Megane.  The car left at that time.

A short time later a grey-coloured car was seen driving on the A711 road near to Glenearly when witnesses saw a wallet being thrown from it.

Police say on examination it was discovered that the wallet was the one stolen earlier from Dalbeattie, minus the money.

The man seen running from the house was in his 30s, short, slim with dark hair and dark framed glasses.
