Evening Times - - NEWS -

POLICE are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses af­ter a safe con­tain­ing a five-fig­ure sum was stolen from a busi­ness in Ed­in­burgh city cen­tre.

Two men forced en­try to a static cabin in Bristo Square in the early hours of Wed­nes­day, police said.

The theft hap­pened at around 6.50am close to McE­wan Hall, with the men leav­ing on foot be­fore get­ting into a ve­hi­cle in For­rest Road a short time later.

The sus­pects are de­scribed as white, aged be­tween 20 and 30, and were wear­ing dark cloth­ing.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Jon Plea­sance said: “The safe would have been heavy to carry and the men would have strug­gled un­der its weight, which would have been dis­tinc­tive to no­tice by passers-by.

“I would ap­peal to them to come for­ward to as­sist our in­quiries.”
