Rock breakers targeted by thieves in Dumfries

Rock breakers and other machinery worth more than £20,000 have been taken in two raids in Dumfries.

Six of the hydraulic hammers used to break rocks were taken from the AMD premises in Newton Road overnight between Thursday and Friday.

Two nights later three rock breakers, three Stihl saws and a plant compactor were taken from Border Civils and Utilities on Irongray Road.

Police said a vehicle would have been involved and are seeking witnesses.
