Theft of Tools in Skye & Lochalsh

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday December 18 2017

Police in Skye & Lochalsh have appealed for information following the theft of tools and other equipment in the Auchtertyre area near Kyle of Lochalsh.

The items were removed from an agricultural shed close to the A890 Auchtertyre to Achnasheen road sometime between 10.20am on Saturday, December 16 and 8am on Monday, December 18.

Entry was forced to the shed and the items stolen included a variety of power and hand tools valued in mid-four figures, as well as a quantity of scrap metal.

Constable Ian Carr of Kyle Police Station said:

"A vehicle would have been needed to remove this amount of items, while the thieves also needed to transport all of the equipment from the shed to the roadside which would have taken some time to complete.

"I am therefore asking anybody who saw anything at all suspicious in the area, whether that is a person or a vehicle, to get in touch with us.

"I would also ask anybody who is offered tools or scrap metal for sale to let us know as soon as you can.

"Our enquiries are ongoing and anyone with information should contact us by calling 101, quoting reference NP11426/17, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
