I would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their assistance

Inspector Derek Paxton

Two men, aged 19 and 38, were arrested and charged by officers on Monday for a total of 15 crimes.

The 38-year-old man appeared at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Tuesday, while the 19-year-old will appear at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court at a later date.

Inspector Derek Paxton said: “These arrests followed extensive enquiries in which information provided by the public helped significantly and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their assistance.

“I would also ask the public to remain vigilant and not to hesitate to report any suspicious persons or vehicles in their area. Several of the properties targeted in these recent crimes were unfortunately insecure.

“I would ask that everyone ensures their property is secure when going out or going to bed for the night.”
