We’ve arrested and charged a 28-year-old man in connection with four armed robberies.
The incidents took place on Monday at Post Offices in Linlithgow, Cowdenbeath, Burntisland and Kincardine.
A 44-year-old woman suffered minor injuries after being assaulted during the robbery in Kincardine.
In total, a four-figure sum was stolen from the premises during the incidents.
Detective Inspector Colin Robson from Dunfermline CID said:
“Crimes of this nature can have a significant impact on victims, witnesses and local communities but, thankfully, they do remain rare.
“We’ve been working tirelessly since the robberies to carry out a thorough investigation and I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to the staff and the public for their ongoing support.
“Enquiries are continuing to trace a second individual and we are currently following a positive line of enquiry in relation to this.”
The 28-year-old is due to appear at Dunfermline Sheriff Court tomorrow.
