Police appeal after thieves steal cash in break-in at North-east bus depot

Police are appealing for information after thieves broke into a North-east bus depot and stole cash.

The incident happened at the Stagecoach bus depot at Balmoor Industrial Estate in Peterhead at around 1.50am this morning.

Detective Sergeant George Nixon, who is leading the investigation, said: “Enquiries are still ongoing to establish just how much has been taken. Aside from this, the break-in has caused disruption to a vital local service and it won’t be tolerated.

“I would encourage anyone with information to please get in touch as soon as possible. Were you out driving last night and have dash-cam footage of the surrounding area? Have you noticed any unusual vehicles or people in the vicinity in the days or hours leading up to the incident?

“Please contact Police on 101 quoting ref. no. 0395 of April 16, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”

A Stagecoach North Scotland spokeswoman said: “We are assisting police with their inquiries. We would encourage anyone with any information to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 0395 of April 16.”
