thieves who escaped with hundreds of pounds of copper wire were lucky to escape without injury.
Police are hunting whoever carried out the robbery from electricity cables in Bothkennar Road, near to Kincardine Road, Carronshore.
A police spokeswoman said: “Whoever was involved either knew what they were doing or were extremely lucky not to have received a severe electric shock or even worse, be electrocuted. They have had no regard for their own safety.
