Police are appealing for witnesses following a theft in Glenrothes.

The incident happened around 2.10pm on Thursday 15th August at the industrial estate in Woodgate Way North.

Anyone with information is asked to come forward.

Detective Constable Fraser Simpson from Glenrothes CID said: “This was a brazen theft in broad daylight and we would urge anyone who witnessed what happened to contact police immediately.

“It is likely that those responsible will look to sell on the stolen mowers and so anyone who is offered such items should decline and report the sellers to us.
