Rural householders are being warned to step up security following a series of break-ins and thefts.
Three quad bikes have been stolen from farms in recent days, with police urging residents to remain vigilant.
A green Suzuki King quad was stolen from Lathrisk Farm, Freuchie, between Tuesday and Wednesday, while another Green Suzuki King and Red Suzuki Eigar quad were stolen from Easter Upper Urquhart Farm, Strathmiglo, sometime between Wednesday and Thursday.
Meanwhile, an attempted housebreaking also occurred at Downfield Farm, at Coaltown of Burnturk, after entry was forced to a shed in the early hours of Friday morning.
It follows reports of a white transit van having been spotted in the area recently.
Community sergeant Ewan Pearce from Cupar Police Station said: “We continue to investigate all of these incidents.
“I would ask anyone who remembers seeing anything suspicious in these areas or who has information relevant to our inquiries to please get in touch.
“I would also advise residents in north east Fife to be vigilant, given this spate of thefts, and report any suspicious activity to police immediately.
“Please make sure your property is not an easy target for criminals by keeping your home appropriately secured with windows and doors kept locked.
“Sheds and garages are extensions of your home and should also be given consideration as to their security.
“Car and van owners should ensure they lock their vehicle and take keys out of the ignition barrel when leaving them unattended.”
