Police Scotland: Appeal after two attempted thefts in Auldearn

Officers are appealing for information after two attempted thefts at properties in Auldearn in recent days.

The first happened at a property off Churchyard Road in the village between 7.30am and 4.30pm on Monday, 28 February.

The householder found that their property had been entered and rooms searched, though nothing was stolen.

The second happened around 2.40am on Wednesday, 2 March where an unknown person gained entry to a house on Montrose Avenue. They were disturbed before leaving the property, again with nothing stolen.

Detective Sergeant Louise Thewlis said: “We are investigating both of these incidents and keeping an open mind about links between the two, although there are similarities.

“On both occasions, the person responsible is believed to have gained access through an unlocked door so I would urge people in Auldearn to be vigilant and make sure their property is as secure as it can be.

“I would also urge anyone who believes they may have any information or who has seen any suspicious activity around the area to get in touch with us.

“You can call 101, quoting incident 2404 of 1 March or 0278 of 2 March. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
