Man seen acting suspiciously near car in #Nairn at 1am this morning. Ensure valuables are kept out of sight & report anything to us on 101.— BadenochStrath&Nairn (@BadenocNairnPol) April 17, 2017
"Police Scotland is making enquiry after a man wearing dark clothing was seen to act suspiciously near to a vehicle at Cawdor Street, Nairn at around 1am this morning (Monday 17 April, 2017).
In appealing for information that could assist enquiries into this crime, Police Scotland asks drivers to take every possible precaution to deter thieves.
Ideally, items of value and personal belongings should never be left within an unattended vehicle and they should certainly never be left in open view.
If car owners are not able to take their property out of the car, they should at least hide it away from prying eyes and lock it out of sight in the boot. While this is not a failsafe deterrent against crime, it denies the would-be thief the opportunity to window shop.
Drivers should look around before moving items from car seat to boot and try and ensure they are not being watched.
They should always ensure that their vehicle is secured when left unattended. Doors should be locked and, windows closed.
Most vehicles these days have alarms and/or immobilisers as standard. Anyone whose vehicle does not have this type of security measure should give consideration to fitting one or both.
Anyone with information that could assist Police Scotland should call 101 quoting ref NM/2395/17, or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111."
