Shotguns stolen from Aberdour house

Several shotguns have been stolen from a house in Fife, police officers have confirmed.

The guns, which were held legally, were taken from a secure cabinet in a house in Aberdour.

The house break-in happened between 2 and 25 April, while the owner was on holiday.

Fife Constabulary want to speak to anyone who may have been offered a shotgun recently or who knows someone who recently bought one.

Locked cabinet

Sgt Kenny Bow, of Fife Constabulary, said: "This break-in has happened whilst the householder has been on an extended holiday.

"During that time, someone has forced entry to the house and subsequently gained access to a locked gun cabinet and a number of legally held firearms have been stolen.

"I am particularly interested in witnesses who may have seen persons in the vicinity of Dovecot Park, Aberdour, between the dates mentioned, who may have been acting suspiciously.

"I am also interested in hearing from anyone who may have been recently offered firearms for use, or sale, or who may have knowledge of someone who has recently acquired one or more shotguns."
