High value theft in Dumfries

Published 11 December 2019

Detectives in Dumfries are appealing for information after a high value theft from the Currys/PC World Store on Tuesday 10 December 2019.

 

Around 4am on Tuesday morning, the suspects gained entry to the rear of the Currys/PC World store in College Mains Road, Dumfries.  They stole a number of items including Apple products including iPads and laptops. The total value is unknown at this time but is expected to be in the region of £40,000.

 

The three suspects were all wearing dark coloured clothing.

 

Detective Constable Mark McLachlan said:  “Police enquiries are continuing today to gather more information on those responsible for this theft.  We believe that there are at least three people involved and a large car or a van would be required to make off with the amount of equipment that was stolen.  Officers have been carrying out enquiries at the industrial estate and viewing CCTV from in and around the area, which will provide officers with more information on those responsible.

 

“The industrial estate is next to the busy A75, and the area is also regularly used by lorry drivers who park overnight.  I would urge anyone who witnessed anything suspicious, or who has any information that will assist our ongoing investigation to contact officers through 101 quoting reference number 0402 of 10 December 2019.  Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
