£40,000 raid on Dumfries electronics store

Police Scotland are appealing for information after £40,000 pounds' worth of electronics were stolen from The Curry's/PC World store in Dumfries.

The theft took place on Tuesday 10 December at approximately 4am.

The thieves gained entry to the rear of the shop in College Mains Road, Dumfries. They stole a number of items including Apple products such as iPads and laptops.

The three suspects were all wearing dark coloured clothing.

Detective Constable Mark McLachlan said: “Police enquiries are continuing today to gather more information on those responsible for this theft. We believe that there are at least three people involved and a large car or a van would be required to make off with the amount of equipment that was stolen. Officers have been carrying out enquiries at the industrial estate and viewing CCTV from in and around the area, which will provide officers with more information on those responsible.

“The industrial estate is next to the busy A75, and the area is also regularly used by lorry drivers who park overnight."

Anyone with any information should contact police on 101.
