TOOLS worth over £9000 were stolen from a builder’s yard in Kirkconnel over the weekend.
Thieves took a T-mac 5′ high tool box and tools, electric drills and grinders, a power washer, wacker plates, a jack hammer, Stihl saws and a cement mixer from a container in the yard of JMC Contracts in St Conal’s Square.
It happened sometime between Friday and Monday.
Police are investigating and PC Scott Graham said: “The amount of tools stolen in this theft would have required a number of people and a large vehicle to remove them from the site. We are asking for the help of the public to see if anyone saw or heard anything suspicious around the yard, which sits between St Conal’s Square and the River Nith, over the weekend.
