A number of faulty white goods and mobility scooters were stolen from a Dundee tenement in a brazen daylight theft.

Police believe the suspects used a van to remove the stolen goods following the incident yesterday on Lorimer Street, sometime between 10.30am and 5.30pm.

The goods were stored at the rear of a tenement block in the street and the culprits would have had to take the items through a common close.

In total, six tumble dryers, four washing machines, a cooker and two mobility scooters were taken.

None of the items were in working order.

It’s hoped that someone would have seen the suspects, who would have likely been at the scene for some time.

A spokesman for Police Scotland added: “These items were in the process of being repaired by their owner and were not in normal working order.

“The stolen items are thought to have been taken through a close to the street, and would have required a van or similar vehicle to take them away. This took place in the middle of the day, so it is hoped that someone has seen this happen.
