Police are appealing for witnesses following two break-ins to farm sheds in north east Fife.

The first break-in occurred at a farm in Cupar.

Two sheds were broken into at Elmwood College Farm between Tuesday, December 29 and Sunday, January 3.

A green Land Rover Defender with a white roof was stolen, along with two red Honda quad bikes and various tools.

The second break-in happened at Greenmyre Farm, Auchtermuchty Road, Dunshalt.

A quad bike was stolen as well as a number of tools from a shed between Wednesday, December 30 and Thursday, December 31.

Community Sergeant Ewan Pearce, from Cupar Police Station, said: “If anyone remembers seeing anything suspicious in these areas around that time, please get in touch.

“I’d like to reiterate how important it is to keep your property secure and remain vigilant.

“Remember that sheds and garages are extensions of your home and should also be given consideration as to their security.

“Security lights, padlocks and CCTV for larger properties should all be considered to deter criminals.

“Anyone with any information about these incidents please contact the police.”
