A car stolen and used in a break-in at a Broughty Ferry store yesterday has been found — and is now being linked to an attempted raid in Dundee city centre.

The BMW which was used to ram-raid the Co-op shop at Panmurefield village was stolen from a home in the early hours of Thursday morning in Carnoustie while the owner slept upstairs.

Police issued an appeal to find the missing vehicle after it was used in the theft, in which cigarettes and alcohol were taken just after 4am.

The vehicle, which was found in the Happyhillock area of Dundee, has now also been linked to an attempted break-in — initially believed to have been a case of vandalism — at the Size clothing shop on the High Street in Dundee city centre.

The car was seen outside Size at about 3.50am on Thursday morning — shortly before the Broughty Ferry incident — with staff at the store arriving for work a few hours later to discover two front windows smashed.

Detective chief inspector Iain Wales said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident at Size in High Street, Dundee which happened around 3.50am or members of the public who saw the black BMW drive through the city centre at that time.

“Also, anyone who may have saw the black BMW travelling between Dundee City Centre and Broughty Ferry at around 4am.

“I would like to remind the public that the registration mark of the BMW is N111 RNC.

“It is believed that the BMW travelled to the Happyhillock area immediately following the break-in to the Co-op at Broughty Ferry and I would appeal for anyone who may have saw the car either being driven or being parked in the area to contact Police Scotland.”

Anyone with any information that may be useful should contact Tayside Division on 101 quoting CR/11262/17 or speak to any police officer.  Alternatively information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
