Central Scotland Police are appealing for information after a large quantity of ink cartridges were stolen from a lorry.

The force says the goods are worth a three-figure sum and the thieves may be looking to sell them on.

A spokeswoman explained that they are intended for the Italian market and are likely to have distinctive writing on the packaging in this language.

She added: "The name of the cartridges are JR-KPI, JR-KBI, JR-KTCI and JR-KTYI. We urge anyone who may have been offered them for sale to come forward."

The theft occurred at some time between 21:00 BST on July 1st and 07:00 BST on July 3rd while the vehicle was parked in Winchester Avenue in Denny.

Last month, it was reported that a worker at Office Depot in the US was arrested after stealing more than $2.1 million (£1.3 million) worth of ink supplies from his workplace since 2006 to sell on.
