More than 100 e-scooters worth £100,000 have been stolen from a business in Midlothian.
Around 100 to 150 boxed scooters were stolen from a building on Dryden Road, Loanhead between 7.15pm on Thursday and 6am on Friday.
It is believed the theft specifically happened between midnight and around 2am.
At least three different models of scooters were stolen in the raid, including Xiamoi pro 2, SAB tech 9 pro and MS65 replicas.
Due to the volume of stolen items, detectives believe those involved in the theft arrived in a vehicle and most likely were using a van or lorry to carry out the theft.
Detective Constable John Lumsden from Dalkeith Police Station, said: “Initial enquiries have been carried out into this theft and we continue to review CCTV from the premises and those nearby.
“I’d ask anyone with private or business CCTV covering the area to check their footage and provide any to us as soon as possible.
“Despite this happening overnight, I’d ask anyone who may have seen any suspicious vehicles in or around the premises in the early hours of Friday morning to report any sightings to officers.
“Due to the number of stolen goods it is likely that the suspects had to load these into a van or lorry over a period of time.
“I’d ask anyone who has recently been offered an e-scooter, or seen new advertisements online for selling sites matching the above description, to report this to officers so that we can investigate.”
Those with information should report this to Police Scotland on 101 and quote incident number 0616 of 11 June. An anonymous report can be given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
