Police Scotland, Tayside Division is appealing for information after a break-in to a property Strang Street, Forfar.
Thieves broke into the unused building sometime between 4 p.m. on Monday, May 19 and 6.30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 20 with the apparent intention to steal copper but made off empty handed after cutting power cables.
There is a possibility they may have injured themselves in doing so and the Police would urge them to come forward.
Aside from the illegal behaviour involved in these types of incidents, the thieves are exposing themselves – and potentially other people – to significant danger and risk to life.
Tayside Division appeals to anyone who saw any suspicious people, vehicles or activity in these areas to get in touch. Likewise, anyone with information that could be of assistance should call 101 or speak to any officer.
