Police probe after £23,000 thefts

CONSTRUCTION equipment worth £23,000 was stolen from two sites in Dumfries at the weekend.

In the first theft, six rock breakers, like that pictured below, were taken from the premises of AMD in Newton Road overnight last Thursday to Friday.
They were worth £12,000 in total.
And overnight on Saturday to Sunday, another three rock breakers, three Stihl saws and a plant compactor were all stolen from the premises of Border Civils and Utilities Ltd in Irongray Road. The total value of the equipment was £11,000.
Police Scotland is carrying out investigations and Constable Gary Bil at Dumfries said: “These two thefts occurred in the same area of the town and the property stolen was situated out in the open, albeit behind security fences.
“Clearly a vehicle and very probably a number of people were responsible and we are asking anyone who may have been in this area over Thursday to Sunday to get in touch if they saw anything suspicious.”
