The break-in has happened at the college sometime between 2215 hours on Tuesday night and 0645 hours on Wednesday 23 March 2016. 

The ATM within the college appears to have been the target, it was broken into and a large sum of cash stolen.

Detective Sergeant Lee Moscrop at Dumfries said: “This appears to have been a well planned break-in and the cash machine was the target for the thieves.  We are asking for the help of the public to identify any suspicious activity in or around the college over the past days and weeks. 

“It is highly possible that those responsible visited the college in order to plan this crime.  Anyone who may have seen or heard anything which might have seemed suspicious, or even a bit unusual, should call us at Dumfries on the 101 number. 

“Sightings of vehicle movements at unusual times or suspicious activity by anyone around the area of the college may well help us trace those responsible.”
