Appeal after car is raided close to cemetery

A car was broken into and damaged with several hundred pounds worth of items taken while it was parked close to a cemetery.

Police are appealing for assistance from the public after the break-in last Sunday when the vehicle was parked near the old railway line on the B9103 in Lossiemouth.

A satellite navigation system was among the items removed from the vehicle at around 4pm on Sunday – now police are hoping that visitors to the cemetery might have seen a man acting in a suspicious manner in the area at that time.

Constable Jonathan Menzies said: “I would like to remind the public to ensure satnavs and other items are removed from open display within vehicles when left unattended.”

Police are asking for assistance in identifying a man seen in the area around the time of the incident. He is described as being 5ft 7in tall and of slim build. He was thought to be wearing jeans and a light-coloured hooded top with blue detail on its front.

Anyone who might have seen a man fitting that description in the area on Sunday is asked to call the police on 101.
