Officers investigating a burglary at a property in Margate are appealing for witnesses.

Between Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 April, the back door of the house in Maynard Avenue had been smashed and entry gained to the property.

Investigating officer Police Constable Mark Huttley said: “The victim has reported that a quantity of money was stolen but also a quantity of Chilean 100 Peso notes.  These are no longer legal tender and therefore could be identifiable if someone were to exchange them for sterling.

“I would urge anyone who may have been offered the notes to get in touch.”
