Scottish Police Seeking Help From NI Public

Police Scotland are asking the general public of Northern Ireland and the Republic if they can help with an ongoing Fyfe robbery investigation.

The incident referred to occurred in London Road, Crossford on Friday 04 May 2018, when a 76-year-old woman was held in a house while a number of items were stolen.

CCTV images previously released show a man who police officers believe has vital information in relation to the inquiry.

It is understood he may have had links to Greenock in Inverclyde, Clarkmannanshire and Stirling, and could also have travelled across to Northern Ireland or the Republic.

Anyone who recognises the man is urged to get in touch.

Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan from Dunfermline CID said: "The man in the CCTV images may have information that can help with the ongoing investigation and one line of inquiry for us is that he may now be somewhere in either Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

"In addition, anyone with any further information relating to this robbery should also contact police immediately.

"Those with information can contact Dunfermline CID via 101 and quote incident number 0099 of 5th May.

"Alternatively, an anonymous report can be made via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
