PEOPLE IN A MORAY town are being warned to take extra precautions as a number of thefts from vehicles, a break-in and several attempted break-ins are being investigated.

A series of incidents has been reported in Lossiemouth overnight on Tuesday, January 26 and into Wednesday, January 27.

The thefts from vehicles and attempted break-in happened on a residential housing estate in the town – in the area of Bishops Court. Items taken, including electrical equipment, are reported to be valued at a low three-figure sum.

In the early hours of Sunday, January 21, a number of bottles of alcohol and several personal items were stolen in a break-in at the Beach Bar in the town.

Investigating officer PC Dave Bell said: “If anyone saw anyone acting suspiciously or they were aware of any suspicious activity last week in the area of Bishops Court they are asked to contact Police on 101.

“Also, as not all vehicles were secure, it is worth reminding householders to keep their homes and vehicles locked when left unattended and to take all valuables out of vehicles overnight.”

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.
