A second theft has been reported to police in Point, following the report last week of the theft of a lawnmower in Sulisiadar.

Over the last four to six weeks a DeWalt mitre saw and a Bosch cordless drill were taken from an outbuilding at a house in Aignish, Point. The items are similar to those pictured.

Stornoway police are appealing for witnesses or information about anyone that may have been seen acting suspiciously in the area.

Anyone with any information in relation to this incident is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if they wish to remain anonymous. The incident number to quote is NH/385/20 

A police spokesperson said: “Crimes of dishonesty at domestic properties fortunately remain an uncommon occurrence in the Western Isles.

However, we can take simple and inexpensive steps to make our homes less attractive to the opportunist thief. 

“Please secure outbuildings, and check them and their contents regularly.  Further crime prevention advice can be found at https://www.scotland.police.uk/keep-safe/home-and-personal-property/secure-your-garden-and-outbuildings
