Opportunistic car theft on Cawdor Road on Wednesday July 26 - Highlands and Islands Police Division appeal for information

The Police are appealing for information after an opportunistic theft from a car in Nairn.

Entry was forced to a parked car in the Cawdor Road area some time between 12pm and 9.45pm on Wednesday, July 26.

Personal items worth a low value sum were subsequently removed from within.

Officers are investigating and urge anybody who saw anything suspicious in the area on Wednesday afternoon or evening to make contact.

Inspector Mike Middlehurst said: "This is an unusual type of incident to happen in Nairn and I would like to offer assurance that police enquiries are ongoing.

"This theft appears to have been opportunistic in nature and it is important that people take steps to discourage criminals.

"Simple acts such as locking your car, not storing valuables in view or hiding them from view can help prevent you from becoming a victim of crime.

"Enquiries are ongoing in relation to the incident on Wednesday and I would urge anyone with information to contact Police on 101, quoting reference NM/5078/17, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
