Police in Kirkcaldy are investigating the theft of an articulated trailer from Havelock Europa in the town’s Mitchelston Drive, between Saturday and Sunday evening (June 1-2).
Detective Sergeant Neil McKenzie from Kirkcaldy CID, who is leading the investigation, said: “The thieves would have needed an HGV tractor unit to remove the trailer, which was loaded with almost 15 tonnes of base material sheeting, used in the construction of work tops.
“As each sheet is between two and three metres square and can only be cut using specialist cutting equipment, it is of no practical value or use to anyone other than the owners, yet the trailer and contents are worth over £40,000.
“The trailer is a white curtained sided vehicle with the fleet number 7370C53 attached to the rear chassis.
“I would urge anyone with any information on the theft to contact Police Scotland on 101 or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
