POLICE in Helensburgh are appealing for witnesses after a car was stolen from outside a home in the town.

The white Vauxhall Antara was taken from outside a house in Armstrong Road, in the Colgrain area, between 2.10am and 8am on Sunday, March 19.

The vehicle's owner, Amanda Logan, said: "They broke into the house while we were in bed.

"They took the keys and £40 that was lying on the table, but I think they just wanted the car, because there were other valuables lying nearby which weren't touched."

In a separate incident, police are also investigating the theft of a dingy from Rhu Sailing Club between March 12 and 17.
