Officers believe the distinctive Ford Transit, which has a blue, white and grey Bishop Auckland Car & Van Hire logo on the side, could have been in the Airth area before or after the attempted robbery at Sainsburys in Station Road, Kinross at around 3.30pm on Saturday, October 17.

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Nicola McGovern, said: “Extensive enquiries have already been carried out into this crime and this vehicle is of significant interest to the investigation.

“It is important that we identify exactly where this van was overnight between Friday and Saturday, October 16 and 17.

“It is understood that it was in the Airth area and anyone who may have seen this vehicle being driven, or indeed anyone who remembers it being parked in Airth or in around the surrounding areas, is asked to contact Police Scotland 101 as they may have information that is vital to the inquiry.”
