A young boy and his family have been left ‘extremely distressed’ after two wheelchairs were stolen from a garden in Glenrothes.
Police are investigating the theft of the wheelchairs, which were specially developed to assist the six-year-old boy who lives with Cerebral Palsy.
They are appealing for anyone who may have any information on the incident, which occurred in Warout Brae sometime overnight on Friday, to contact them.
One of the chairs is described as medium-sized, metallic red with spoke wheels, while the other is small, black with yellow disk wheels and smiley faces on them.
Constable Billijane Ballingall from the Community Investigation Unit said: “This is the most despicable of crimes, which has left the young boy and his family extremely distressed.
“Both wheelchairs assist in improving the victim’s quality of life and independence and we are keen to hear from anyone who can help us in reuniting the items with their owner.”
Anyone with any information, or who saw anything suspicious should contact police on 101.
