Tins of paint have been stolen from a house at the weekend.
On Saturday night, a painter left the tins in a new home that was about to be painted.
When he returned to paint the house, he was missing about 17 cans of Haymes Paint.
The paint was in 10-litre ultra premium gold tins and the colour of the paint was greyology.
Police have appealed for help from the public for anyone who has seen the cans of paint or know of someone who is in possession of the same type.
