POLICE are bidding to stub out a smoky gang who made off with £8,000 worth of cigarettes from a warehouse in Kinross.

Cops say 175 packs of 20 Richmond King Size were taken from a David Sands warehouse at the Bridgend Industrial Estate last Wednesday evening.

The premises were broken into between 8.15pm and 9pm, and detectives suspect the thieves made off in a green getaway car.

Workers said that they were not allowed to speak about the incident, but according to one insider the incident is the latest in recent spate of fag thefts from the same chain of shops.

Police appealed to anyone who spotted a green Peugeot 406 saloon in the area at the time.
