Raiders steal cash af­ter break­ing into bus de­pot

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

THIEVES raided a North-east bus de­pot and stole cash.

The in­trud­ers broke into the Stage­coach fa­cil­ity on the Bal­moor In­dus­trial Es­tate in Peter­head at around 1.50am yes­ter­day and fled with the money.

Po­lice said they have not yet been able to es­tab­lish how much was taken, and of­fi­cers want any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact them.

De­tec­tive Sergeant Ge­orge Nixon said: “Were you out driv­ing that 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?

“I would en­cour­age any­one with in­for­ma­tion to please get in touch as soon as pos­si­ble.” He added: “In­quiries 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.”

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.”
