Police issue warning after Mosstodloch theft

POLICE are warning the public to remove valuables from their vehicles, following a break-in to a van parked in Mosstodloch.

During the incident on Monday, February 3, two petrol-driven cutting saws and a radio were stolen from the vehicle parked on Pinewood Road.

The stone-cutting saws, an orange Husqvarna K760 and an orange Husqvarna K750, are each valued at a mid three-figure sum.

The radio, a Makita job site radio with a blue/green case, is valued at a low three-figure sum

Constable Paul Thompson, of the Fochabers local policing team, said: "I would urge people not to keep high value items in plain view in their vehicles, but instead remove them from the vehicle at the end of the working day.

"When this is not possible, keep them in a locked tool box securely mounted to the vehicle.

"I would appeal to anyone who is offered any of these items, or who has knowledge of their current whereabouts, to come forward."

Anybody with any information is asked to phone Police Scotland on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if wishing to remain anonymous.
