POLICE are appealing for information following four incidents of wilful fire-raising in Buckie.

Between 2.45am and 3.15am on Wednesday, 9 June officers attended fires at three different properties on Gordon Street and a further in Main Street.

Two wheelie bins and one shed were set alight on Gordon Street and a shed was set on fire at a property on Main Street.

The male suspect is described as being tall and thin and was wearing grey jogging trousers.

Constable Christopher Mackinnon, said: “Luckily no-one was hurt as a result of these incidents, which have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage.

“We believe these incidents are linked and are appealing for anyone who may have seen anyone in the areas around the time to get in touch. We would also ask anyone in the area with private CCTV to review the footage and get in touch with any information.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 0305 of 9 June, 2021. Alternatively, information can be given to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111
