"Sometime between Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September 2019, a set production and prop company based in Lochside Road, Limerigg, near Falkirk was broken into and amongst other things, a large selection of replica police clothing and equipment was stolen.
The items taken include stab vests, police t-shirts, police trousers, police fleeces, police hats, imitation batons, handcuffs and Pava spray containers.
Many of these garments are embroidered with 'Police'.
There is no intelligence to suggest how this property will be used, however there is concern that those responsible may look to use these to imitate Police Officers, as the props look very realistic.
Police Scotland advice is that if you have any doubt about unusual police activity around your premises or the authenticity of someone claiming to be an officer, ask to see identification and if they cannot provide it, or you have any doubts at all then report them via 101."
