Thieves target Kirkcaldy church building site for second time

The Church of Christ Building was taken over by the Salvation Army earlier this year

Thousands of pounds worth of building equipment has been stolen from the site of an old church in Kirkcaldy.

Copper piping, a cement mixer and power tools are among the items stolen from the Church of Christ building on Hayfield Road.

It is the second time in just a number of weeks the site- which has been under construction since being taken over by the Salvation Army in June- has been targeted.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “Between 6pm on Tuesday, October 1 and 7am Wednesday, October 2, copper piping and power tools valued at £2,300 were stolen from the Church of Christ on Hayfield Road.

“Anyone who witnessed the theft or saw anyone acting suspiciously at that time is urged to call Police Scotland on 101.”
