Tens of thousands of pounds worth of vehicles have been stolen from a Borders College building.
Three Ford Transit minibuses, four quadbikes and three trailers were taken in the heist on Monday night.
The total value of the theft is in the region of £70,000.
The break-in happened at the college’s agricultural building in Newtown St Boswells around 10.30pm.
Detective constable Andrew Loughlin said: “This was a targeted and carefully planned incident and we are appealing to the public to help trace those involved.
“Extensive enquiries are currently ongoing in the area and any information could prove vital to our investigation.
“Although this happened relatively late at night, I would ask that if you noticed any of these vehicles or suspicious behaviour around the area of the college that you get in touch with officers.
“I would also ask if any motorists have possible dashcam footage that may have captured these vehicles on camera that they come forward and speak to police.”
The registrations of the three minibuses, which were stolen from the front car park, were ST60 MYR, SM61 GCX and SM13 YAF.
The quadbikes included a red Yamaha, red Suzuki, green Suzuki and a Green Honda. A number of hands and power tools were also taken.
If you have any information contact police on 101.
