Thieves have used a car stolen from Kirkcaldy to carry out an early morning raid on supermarket.
The blue Audi Q5 car was taken from an address in Inchkeith Crescent between midnight and 4am on May 15.
Police believe the car was then used during a break-in at the Roslin Supermarket in Midlothian the following night.
Four men, who had forced entry to the shop, were seen leaving the shop having taken a three-figure sum and entering into a dark coloured Audi at around 2:50am.
The car then made off in the direction of Bilston and has yet to be recovered. Investigators believe this is the same car taken from Kirkcaldy.
Officers are also linking the car theft with a similar incident which took place in the Seafield area of Kirkcaldy on April 27.
Detective Sergeant Craig Fraser from Kirkcaldy CID said: “It is always distressing when peoples homes are broken into and their property is stolen.
“We are appealing for anyone who can assist with our inquiries to contact police immediately.
“If you have seen any suspicious activity in the Inchkeith Crescent/Seafield area of Kirkcaldy please get in touch.
“We are also keen to hear from anyone who has seen the stolen Audi Q5, which has yet to be traced.”
He issued a warning to residents to consider their vehicle’s safety outside their houses by keeping the keys hidden and out of sight.
