Vandalisms in Dingwall

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday December 4 2017

Police in Ross-shire have appealed information following a number of vehicles being vandalised in the Dingwall area.

Reports have been received of a number of vehicles being damaged while parked different areas of the town on Thursday, November 30.

One of the incidents involved three vintage vehicles - a car, a campervan and a pick-up truck - parked in the Macintyre Place area which suffered damage to bodywork, lights and a windscreen which was smashed.

This incident is believed to have occurred sometime between 7pm and 10pm.

A second incident was reported in the Seaforth Place area at around 8.40pm where a car had its wing mirror broken.

Damage was also caused to a car, which suffered a scratch to its bodywork, sometime between 1.50pm and 2pm in the Fingal Road area of Dingwall.

Enquiries are ongoing into all three incidents and officers are appealing for anyone with information to make contact.

Commenting Inspector Alasdair Goskirk said:

"Causing this kind of damage to vehicles is completely selfish and unnecessary, as well as being a source of great frustration to the victims.

"I would ask people in Dingwall to check their vehicles and report any damage to us if they find it.

"Our enquiries are ongoing into all three incidents and I would urge anyone with information who has seen anything suspicious to contact officers in Dingwall on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
