Police investigating £70,000 heist from Glenrothes caravan business

The motorhome was stolen overnight on Monday

Thieves have stolen two cars and a motorhome, worth over £70,000, from a workshop in Glenrothes.

The vehicles have been taken from Touring Caravan Services, which sells and repairs motorhomes from its premesis on Woodgate Way North.

A white Vauxhall Astra with the registration number BN10 EFE, a silver Mercedes-Benz ML350 with the registration number ST61 CZO and a black and white Swift Bolero motorhome with the registration SP64 CUW were stolen in the raid.

A silver Hyundai Santa Fe, which was also taken, was recovered nearby the following day.

The keys to all of the vehicles were taken prior to the theft of the vehicles.

In addition, owners of the business say the majority of their tools have been stolen, which is hindering their ability to work.

Wrenches; socket, spanner and screwdriver sets; saws and drills; clamps and a digital caliper gauge were taken.

"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.
