Police in Fife are appealing to members of the public in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to assist with their ongoing investigation into a robbery in Crossford.

The incident happened on Lundin Road around 11pm on Friday 4th May, where a 76-year-old woman was held in a house and a number of items were stolen from the property.

Officers have previously issued CCTV images of a man believe may be able to assist them with their enquires and believe he may have had links to the Greenock and Clackmannanshire areas.

Further inquiries have established this individual may have travelled to either Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland and anyone in either of these countries who recognises the male is asked to come forward.

Detective Inspector Kelly McEwan from Dunfermline CID said: "The man in the CCTV images may have information that can help with the ongoing investigation and one line of inquiry for us is that he may now be somewhere in either Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.

"I'd ask that communities from both countries look at our footage and get in touch as a matter of urgency if they believe they recognise the man pictured.

"In addition, anyone with any further information relating to this robbery should also contact police immediately."

Those with information can contact Dunfermline CID via 101 and quote incident number 0099 of 5th May. Alternatively, an anonymous report can be made via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
