Callous theives made off with a car and high value tools during an overnight garage break-in in Irvine. 

The Kwik Fit in Quarry Road was broken into at around 3.44am this morning [Friday, October 16]. 

A large quantity of specialist tools and equipment was stolen in the raid as well as a silver coloured Vauxhall Astra car, Registration Number LO61HWE.

Detective Sergeant Stephen McCulloch at Saltcoats CID said: "We are keen to hear from anyone who may have been around the area of Kwik Fit in the early hours of this morning. 

"Clearly a vehicle must have been used to transport the tools and equipment so we are keen to hear about any vehicle movements in this area either late on Thursday evening or early on Friday morning. 

"In particular we would like to trace a white coloured Peugeot Boxer van which was seen in the area around this time. 

"I would also ask that anyone who may have been driving in the area in a vehicle fitted with a dash-cam device take time to examine their device to see if it holds anything that might be of assistance to us."
