Police are appealing for information following the theft of £70,000 worth of vehicles from a Glenrothes business.

Four vehicles were stolen from Touring Caravan Services in Woodgate Way North overnight between Monday January 7 and Tuesday January 8.

The suspects are believed to have arrived at the premises in a vehicle before they forced their way in and stole the keys to four vehicles.

The thieves then made off with a white Vauxhall Astra with the registration number BN10 EFE, a silver Mercedes-Benz ML350 with the registration number ST61 CZO, a black and white Swift Bolero motorhome with the registration SP64 CUW, and a silver Hyundai Santa Fe.

The Hyundai was recovered a short distance away from the premises on Tuesday.

The value of the stolen vehicles is estimated to be more than £70,000.

Inquiries are currently ongoing and anyone who has seen the vehicles is asked to get in touch immediately.

Detective Sergeant Mark Beveridge from Glenrothes CID said: “We believe at least four or possibly five people have been involved in this incident as the vehicles were all driven away from the premises.

“I would appeal to anyone who has seen any of these vehicles in the Fife area since their theft, or has information in their current whereabouts, to get in touch as soon as possible.

“Please be mindful that the registration numbers could have been changed.

“Equally anyone with any information on those involved, or who might have seen any suspicious behaviour in the area prior to the incident, is asked to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Glenrothes CID via 101, quoting incident number 0555 of 8 January, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
