A number of high-value off-road motorbikes and mountain bikes have been stolen in an overnight raid.

Police are appealing for information following the incident near the village of Thornton, Kirkaldy.

The theft was reported at around 10.20am on Saturday, September 17.

Detective Sergeant Alasdair Young, Glenrothes CID, said police are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen anything suspicious.

“This incident happened at a rural location and it appears that the persons responsible knew what they were looking for and would have required transport to take the bikes away,” he said.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area, including on rural roads between Tykes Burn and Lochty Burn, off the A92.

“Likewise, we are keen to speak to anyone who may be offered these kind of bikes for sale.”

Anyone who can assist is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting incident number 1030 of Saturday, September 17, 2022.
