Detective Constable Jim Soutar, who led the inquiry, said: “Extensive police enquiries have led us to identify and report a man for stealing from houses as far apart as Falkland and Colinsburgh.
“We have also been able to recover some of the property taken from these houses and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their assistance in this and in other enquiries. In particular, the success of this enquiry was as a direct result of a call from a member of the public who noted the registration number of a suspicious vehicle. This greatly assisted us in our investigations and ultimately led to the arrest of the man accused of these crimes.
“The public have a key role to play in the prevention and detection of crime and I would urge anyone who sees anything suspicious to contact Fife Constabulary straight away, either directly on 0845 600 5702 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111”.
