“I ask that anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in the area on Monday afternoon, or who has seen the scooter since, contacts us as soon as possible. I would ask that the public are vigilant to any scooters matching the above description and be mindful that the registration plates could have since been removed or altered.

“Equally anyone who knows who may be responsible for this theft is asked to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Glenrothes Police Station via 101, quoiting incident number 2098 of 20 November. Alternatively an anonymous report can be made to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
