Thieves steal safe containing five figure sum from cabin in Bristo Square

I'm assuming this theft will relate to the ticket sales for the Winter Festival events.  See  the police media release here from which the following is an extract:
Police Scotland are appealing for witnesses following a theft from a business premises in Edinburgh city centre.
At around 6.50am on Wednesday, 1 January 2020, two men forced entry to a static cabin premises on Bristo Square, close to McEwan Hall. They left a short time later with a safe containing a five-figure sum of cash.
The pair are believed to have left the area in a vehicle, possibly a dark-coloured hatchback, along Forrest Road and then onto Chambers Street.
The suspects are both described as white, aged between 20 to 30-years-old, and were wearing dark coloured clothing.
Detective Inspector Jon Pleasance from Edinburgh CID said: “Since the theft happened we have been carrying out a number enquiries and understand that the men arrived at the premises at 06.51 from Teviot Place.
“They left on foot around three minutes later and CCTV enquiries have established that they got into a vehicle on Forrest Road at 06.54am.
