Police investigating an armed robbery on a Kirkcaldy bank have released more images.

It comes just 48 hours after a man was arrested in connection with the dramatic incident at the Bank of Scotland on Carberry Road on November 11 which sparked a major operation which saw nearby schools locked down while bomb disposal squads arrived and a helicopter hovered overhead.

Officers leading the investigation say they are making significant progress - and hope the release of more images of items will bring information from people.

They have issued pictures of clothing - a hooded top and sunglasses - worn by the man who was in the taxi used as part of the raid.

Officers now want to identify him - and have appealed for people to come forward.

DI Charlie Duncan, who is leading the enquiry, said: “We have made significant progress during the enquiry and are still keen to trace anyone who can identify clothing worn by the person who abducted the taxi driver that day.

“I have previously released photographs of a holdall used during the robbery and can now release images of clothing worn by the person who was within the taxi during the driver’s ordeal. ‘‘

He added: ‘‘“Someone will know the individual who no longer has these sunglasses or hooded top and I would ask that they come forward and provide their details to the Police’.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
