£100,000 of Scotch whisky stolen

Published:  12 February, 2010

More than £100,000 worth of whisky has been stolen from a Scottish transport depot.

Police are investigating the theft of two trailer loads of Grant's blended Scotch whisky, from yard in Dumfries on Wednesday, February 10.

CCTV footage indicates that two trailers were removed from the Currie Group Yard at Heathhall at around midnight.

The tractor units;  one a white Scania and the other a blue Daf were later seen towing two Currie trailers north on the A701 towards Moffat.

Detective inspector, Graham Kerr, senior investigating officer in the case said: We are seeking the help of the public in trying to track the movements of these two tractor units, either prior to the theft without the trailers, or after the theft with the trailers attached.

"It seems that a good deal of planning went into this theft and anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in or around the yard in the days prior to the theft are asked to contact us.  No piece of information should be considered too small in a crime like this, it may well be that it fits into the jigsaw that we are trying to piece together"
