Blank tickets have been stolen from the office on High Street.

The incident happened around 10.50pm on Friday August 3 at the Friends of the Fringe Ticket Office in Old Assembly Close, on the High Street.

Police believe that nothing of value was stolen at the time, however, staff are trying to establish if any blank tickets were taken and police are urging anyone who can assist with their inquiries to come forward.

Constable Kirsty Brown from Gayfield Police Station said: “If staff confirm blank tickets were stolen, then there is potential that those responsible will try to create counterfeit tickets and we want the public to ensure they only buy from reputable vendors.
