Fife Police are praising the vigilance of local farmers after a man was arrested following the recovery of a horsebox, which was stolen from a farm near Kirkcaldy.

The owner heard a noise, and on going out, saw her horsebox had been stolen. A neighbour saw a car which had driven into the farm shortly before the theft.

Police were contacted and saw the horsebox being towed by a car near Cowdenbeath. The horsebox was recovered undamaged and a man has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Detective Sergeant Colin Robson, from Kirkcaldy, said: “This is a prime example of how vigilance by members of the public has led to a man being arrested, and stolen property being returned to the owner.

“There has been an increase in daytime thefts from isolated farms and I ask people to make sure that tools, quad bikes and fuel are all locked out of sight.

“If you are suspicious of anyone walking around your premises, or of vehicles in the area, please contact the Police on 08456 005702.”
