Thieves have stolen thousands of pounds worth of motorbikes and tools from a storage unit in a Fife town.
James Wilson, from Methil, arrived at Leven’s Westburnmill Industrial Estate on Friday to discover a trail of destruction.
His storage unit had been ripped open and three motocross-style bikes, each worth thousands of pounds, were missing.
A number of tools were also taken in the raid, which happened in the town’s Burnmill Road some time between 1am and 2am.
Police are now investigating the break-in. It is understood to be the latest in a series of similar thefts in the Levenmouth area over the last few months.
It also comes just days after a racer in Perthshire revealed three of his prize bikes, worth around £20,000 in total, were stolen from a garage at Scone Airport.
Mr Wilson has taken to social media in a bid to track down those responsible.
He said one of the bikes – a KXF 250 2008 – did not have a seat when it was left in the garage.
The other two machines are a KTM 250 2002 and a Husky FC 250 2015.
Mr Wilson said he had been left “absolutely raging and gutted” by the events, and appealed for help in catching the culprits.
“They ripped the side off the building and moved my car that was in front of the shutter in the process, denting all the side of it,” he added.
The unit’s heavy roller shutter had also been badly damaged in the incident.
CCTV footage from the area at the time appears to suggest the culprits used a white Transit van to take away the stolen bikes and equipment.
They were in the unit for around an hour before making their escape.
It is believed the van may have been spotted in and around the area a few hours prior to the break-in.
In the Perthshire incident, a KTM XCW 150, a Honda CRF450 Supermoto and a Yamaha R6 were taken from a garage belonging to Paul Wishart, from Methven.
The machines were stolen from a garage at Scone Airport a KTM XCW 150, a Honda CRF450 Supermoto and a Yamaha R6 some time between last Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.
Paul, a mechanic, has been collecting and adding to his bike collection since he took up the sport 16 years ago.
He said: “It’s a tight-knit community, the biking world, so if they did try and sell them in that scene then I think it would come back to me.”
Anyone with any information about the van seen in Leven or the motorbikes’ whereabouts should contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
