Laptops and other IT equipment were taken in the raid

Laptops and other IT equipment worth about 30,000 have been stolen in a warehouse raid in southern Scotland.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the theft at Biggars Mill on Port Road in Dalbeattie.

The incident took place some time between 2010 GMT on Monday and 0830 GMT on Tuesday.

A police spokesman said they were keen to trace the driver of a red Ford Focus seen travelling slowly in the area at about 1600 GMT on Monday.

Det Con Grant Wilson said: "We need to trace the people responsible for this high value theft."

He said that in addition to the red Ford they also wanted to speak to the driver of a white van seen nearby at 2130 GMT on Monday.

He added: "We are also keen to speak to anyone who has been offered any forms of laptops, memory cards and other IT equipment in the past few days."
