Many will be aware of the theft of  a “Bear bin” from Letham Primary School

Police in North East Fife are currently investigating the thoughtless theft of a school bin in the shape of a bear taken from Letham School.

tidybearPolice were alerted on Monday 28 June that the dustbin, valued at nearly £200, had been stolen from the school playground.

PC Pamela Hay who is leading the investigation said:

“The bin was last seen by school staff on Friday 25 June. On returning after the weekend, the theft was discovered.

“The brown bear bin is quite distinctive and I would appeal to any person with any knowledge of this theft, or who may have seen the bear bin to contact us on 0845 600 5702 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where all calls are treated anonymously.”

Well good news.. On returning from a Night shift at T in The Park, I was met with this sight just outside the village.

Having walked on the road earlier that evening, it was obvious that the bin had been left there under the cover of dark.

So one  £200 bin recovered and after fingerprinting and DNA swabs being taken was returned to the school.
