Police are appealing for information after two quad bikes were stolen from a farm in Eyemouth.

The incident happened some time between 5pm on Sunday evening and 7am on Monday morning when a secure shed on a farm in Reston was broken into and two Honda quad bikes were stolen along with an Iveco HGV cattle float.

Police are appealing for anyone who noticed any suspicious behaviour to get in touch with police. Officers are particularly keen to speak with anyone who may have seen a cattle float in the area at an unusual time and which may have appeared out of the ordinary.

Chief Inspector Andy McLean said: “Quad bikes are high value items and as such are attractive to be would be thieves, I would advise people to ensure all outbuildings are secure, and to consider the overall security of their premises. In this particular instance the thieves have made off with items which are crucial to the running of this farm and with that comes considerable inconvenience to the owner as well as the financial loss”.

“Anyone who noticed any suspicious activity around Reston on the night in question, or who has information on stolen quad bikes, is urged to contact police on 101.”
