Students at St Andrews University are being asked for help following a major police incident in the town a week ago.
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, while many others witnessed a police helicopter circling overhead.
Now the university has been asked to distribute an appeal for help from Police Scotland in connection with the incident in Kennedy Gardens near University Hall.
The appeal, emailed to students by the university, said: “Officers have carried out a search of the area however believe that some items of clothing, particularly black “Rover dry” trousers and tops remain unaccounted for.
“If anyone has found items matching this description or knows of their location we would ask them to contact the police on 101 or attend at St Andrews police station”.
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.
Kai McGinley, 16, of Tufnell Park Road in London, Benson Aluko, 19, Alvey Street, London, Paul Hogwood, 55, Thyer Close, Orpington, Kent, Peter Atwood, 43, no fixed abode, Thomas Slayford, 19, Sunwell Close, London, and Kevin Mulheron, 33, of Cults Street, Glasgow, made no plea or declaration and the case was continued for further examination.
Atwood also appeared on drugs charges.
Slayford and Aluko were granted bail while the other four were remanded in custody.
