Police say they are running out of avenues to investigate a year after two thieves robbed a Kirkcaldy bank.
Detective Inspector Graeme Dursley said that officers had “exhausted almost all possible lines of enquiry” as part of the bid to bring the two men that robbed the branch of TSB in Templehall to justice.
The incident happened on Friday 29 January 2016, when two men entered the bank before threatening staff and making off with a four-figure sum of money.
Detectives previously released CCTV images and footage to the public which shows the two suspects.
However, 12 months on police admit that they are still awaiting a breakthrough in the case.
DI Dursley said: “One year on from the robbery, we’ve exhausted almost all possible lines of enquiry but we remain committed to bringing the perpetrators of this crime to justice.
“We’ve conducted significant investigations in the area including speaking to over 400 local residents, reviewing CCTV and collecting forensic evidence at the scene.
“The support from the local community for both our investigation and the bank staff following this terrifying incident has been tremendous and I want to thank everyone who came forward.
“We’ve issued numerous appeals to the public, including releasing CCTV footage and an appeal on BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow, but I believe that someone in the community may still hold vital information.”
The first man is described as white, in his late twenties or early thirties, with dark stubble on his face. He was wearing a dark-coloured baseball cap and dark-coloured clothing.
The second man is described as white, 5ft 9ins tall, around 30 years old, of medium build and with stubble. He wore a dark-coloured baseball cap, a dark blue/grey hooded top and dark-coloured trainers.
He was also wearing dark blue jogging bottoms with a distinctive white-coloured motif that read “Mordex” and partially ran down one leg. Mordex is a Polish brand typically associated with bodybuilding.
The first man was seen riding a mountain bike and the second a grey and red mountain bike on Alford Avenue before the incident, and in the area of Cawdor Crescent a short time after the incident. Both were also seen carrying green carrier bags.
Mr Dursely added: “Anyone with information that may be relevant, who saw the suspects in the area and has not yet spoken to us, or who recognises their descriptions is urged to get in touch as soon as possible.”
