Police were yesterday following a “positive line of inquiry” after a thief was caught on camera, having stolen a child’s piggy bank.
Six-year-old Kyle Watters was left heartbroken after the money he was saving for a dream trip to Disneyland Paris was stolen during a break-in, as reported by The Courier yesterday.
The boy’s mother Lynne Watters described the thief who stole Kyle’s bank as the “lowest of the low”.
The criminal was captured on CCTV climbing in and out of their remote farm cottage near Upper Largo in Fife.
In all a three-figure sum was stolen from the property.
As police investigated Friday afternoon’s incident and examined CCTV images, single parent Lynne told The Courier the tractor-shaped ceramic bank was being used by Kyle to save up for a trip to Disneyland Paris.
Meanwhile, The Courier was yesterday contacted by a reader offering to pay to help send Kyle on his dream holiday.
