£20,000 stolen at the Ricoh

As thieves nick safe

Thieves stole a safe, which contained almost £20,000 in cash from the Ricoh British Women’s Open at Kingsbarns.

The safe was stolen from a Portakabin at the course by thieves who broke into it some time after 8.15pm on Saturday, August 5 – the penultimate day of the competition – and six o’clock the following morning, when the theft was discovered by staff.

Police in Fife said they have worked closely with staff at the course and have been pursuing “a number of lines of inquiry”.

Detective Inspector Graham Fenton said: “The Portakabin was being used in connection with the Women’s British Open tournament and, as a result, the safe contained a significant sum of money.

“We are eager to hear from anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around Kingsbarns Golf Course last weekend, or anyone who can assist with our on-going inquires.”
