Police have quashed speculation on social media that another major police operation was under way in St Andrews on Tuesday morning.
Dozens of people took to Facebook to report the sighting of a police helicopter over the town.
But contacted by The Courier, a Police Scotland spokesperson confirmed that the helicopter was on a training exercise.
Last Tuesday a police helicopter hovered over the Wardlaw Gardens area of the town during a major police incident.
Six males, aged between 16 and 55, were charged with conspiracy to rob following an intelligence-led operation carried out by the Organised Crime & Counter Terrorism Unit.
Armed officers were seen in the town by students and other locals.
Four people from London, one from Glasgow and a sixth from Kent appeared on petition at Dundee Sheriff Court last Thursday charged with conspiring to commit a robbery at commercial premises in St Andrews.
The six appeared in private on a petition alleging they hired a car, travelled to Glasgow, stole two scooters and travelled to St Andrews in possession of hammers, knives, a sledgehammer, a machete and a meat cleaver.
