Four men with their faces covered have broken into an office and leisure building, stolen a safe and attempted to force entry to an ATM within the foyer.

They left the area in a dark-coloured vehicle, possibly a Mazda 3, bearing the registration plates SK56 UKX.

Enquires have established that the registration plates were stolen from another car at Auchingane in the Dreghorn area of Edinburgh sometime after 4.30pm on Tuesday.

The men involved in the break-in are then believed to have travelled south over the Forth Road Bridge before abandoning the safe near Monktonhall Colliery in the Millerhill area.

“I would urge anyone who may have seen suspicious behaviour in the Kinghorn, Dreghorn or Millerhill areas in the early hours of Wednesday morning to come forward.

“Likewise, anyone who has seen a car with these registration plates is asked contact us to help us trace these men and prevent further crimes being committed.”
