Alcohol worth six-figure sum taken in Renfrewshire raid

Police are searching for two men who stole alcohol worth a six-figure sum from a haulage firm in Renfrewshire.

The men, wearing hi-vis clothing, entered a yard in the Linwood area on Sunday at about 5pm .

Two trucks, containing the alcohol, were then accessed by the pair.

Detectives say that one of the trucks was driven behind a small black car to the nearby Riverpark industrial estate in Bridge Street.

The cab was then disconnected from the trailer and fitted to another cab and driven away, with the alarm raised at around midnight.

One of the trucks has since been recovered in the East Kilbride area.

Detective Sergeant Michael Lochrie, from Paisley CID, said: “Extensive enquiries are under way and we are appealing for anyone with information regarding this incident to please get in touch.

“In particular, we would ask anyone who was in the vicinity of Riverpark industrial estate around 5pm yesterday evening and may have noticed any suspicious activity to contact police.

“We would also urge motorists with dashcams who were in the area to check their footage in case they have captured anything which could be of significance to our enquiries.”
