A second man has been charged following a spate of armed robberies at Fife post offices this week.

The 38-year-old man is scheduled to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Friday after raids on branches in Cowdenbeath, Burntisland, and Kincardine.

A fourth store in Linlithgow was also targeted, with the four raids resulting in a four-figure sum of money being taken.

The same man has also been charged with three further robberies and attempted robberies that took place in Larkhall on 23 December, Glenboig on 6 January and Clarkston on 7 January.

Another man has already been arrested and charged and is also scheduled to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court today.

Detective Inspector Colin Robson of Dunfermline CID said: “Thanks to the combined efforts of officers from four territorial divisions, as well as specialist resources, two men have now been charged in connection with these incidents and we’re not currently looking for anyone else.

“I want to again commend the staff involved for their assistance following these distressing incidents, as well as thank the local communities and everyone who came forward with information for their support.”
