Despite damaging the CCTV, another camera captured both men breaking the law.

A Scottish business is appealing for witnesses after two men broke into Ceiling2Floor. CCTV providers, AlertSystems, respond to the crime.

The thieves tore off a security camera outside the home improvements shop before raiding the till and taking around £200. Despite damaging the CCTV, another camera captured both men breaking the law. A witness at the car park on Middlefield Industrial Estate heard the thieves breaking in, but could not identify either man as they fled.

Manager, Mark Holmes, said the robbery ended quickly: “We managed to capture them on the internal CCTV and the pair, particularly the bigger guy, are distinctive. They made off with the money from the till. Luckily they didn’t take anything else, like my iPad that was sitting on the desk or try to get into the safe, but they caused a lot of damage. “Hopefully someone recognises them and passes on their details to the police.”

The thinner man was wearing an Adidas tracksuit and Nike Air Max trainers, whereas the heavier man had a hooded sweatshirt on, the CCTV footage revealed. The police are urging anyone with information regarding these criminals to call Police Scotland on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A spokesperson for AlertSystems, nationwide providers of CCTV and security systems, released a statement following the store theft: “Stores around the country can be targets for thieves who are looking to steal as much cash as they can without being caught.
