OLD car batteries have been stolen by thieves who broke into a recycling centre.
Police are appealing for witnesses or information after the raid at the Seafield Recycling Centre in Fillyside Road.
The theft took place some time between 7.30pm on Sunday and 7am on Monday.
A number of old car batteries were stolen from the facility after the crooks cut a hole in a metal storage container before transporting the items initially in wheelie bins.
It is then thought that a motor vehicle removed the batteries from the site.
Constable Lyndsay Porteous yesterday urged anyone with information on the theft to contact police.
She said: “This theft was a well-planned operation that we believe would have taken around couple of hours to execute and will have involved more than one person.
“Anyone who might have seen anything suspicious, or a vehicle or vehicles parked in the area between the hours indicated, is asked to contact police immediately on 101.”
