The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Po­lice have warned that farm­ing in­sid­ers may be help­ing crim­i­nals stage raids on ru­ral prop­er­ties across Tay­side. It is feared na­tional and in­ter­na­tional gangs are be­ing di­rected to plum tar­gets in Perth and Kin­ross and An­gus. High value farm­ing ma­chin­ery and ve­hi­cles, have all been taken “to or­der” in tar­geted thefts across Courier Coun­try’s re­gions. At least one gang has been smashed by Po­lice Scot­land, but in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve oth­ers are be­ing di­rected to­wards easy marks by in­for­mants.
