Thieves steal Forfar house's double garage

Thieves have dismantled and stolen a prefabricated double garage from outside a house.

Police said the garage would have taken several days to dismantle and would have required a large vehicle or trailer to remove it from the site.

It was stolen from a house in the grounds of the Orchardbank Industrial Estate in Forfar, Angus.

The house, which sits behind business premises owned by Brogan Fuels, is said to have lain empty for many years.

As well as the garage, a pair of 6ft tall ornate metal gates and four concrete paving stones were also taken.

The property was targeted some time between 28 May and 13 June.

A spokesman for Police Scotland's Tayside division said: "It's likely that whoever is responsible for this theft carried out the dismantling of the garage over a period of days.

"Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area."
