Police have appealed for information after a woman stole a large sum of cash that had been dropped by a householder outside her home.

The woman was seen on CCTV picking the bundle of notes off the ground in Murray Terrace, Perth, at about 15:10 on Friday.

She is seen flicking through the cash before walking towards the city centre.

Maxine Stronach, who dropped the money, said it was a substantial amount which was going to be used to buy a caravan.

She has appealed for information on her Facebook page and published CCTV images taken from a camera outside her property.

In the post, Mrs Stronach said: "The police are also looking for her, any information on who she is please PM me or contact the police.

"We are willing to provide a reward."

A spokesman for Police Scotland said they were following a positive line of inquiry.

The woman was described as wearing a navy blue, thigh-length parka jacket with fur hood, black leggings, trainers and an over-the-shoulder tan handbag.

She was seen walking onto Viewlands Road, then Glasgow Road.
