Equipment worth more than £3,000 have been stolen from a Highland home that is currently being renovated.

The items were taken from a property in Wallace Place, Fort William, sometime between 8.45pm on Wednesday and 8.15am yesterday.

They include some smaller items but also cordless drills, nail gun, a finishing gun, grinder, router, batteries and charger, as well as a radio.

Many of the items are branded ‘Makita’.

Constable David Mockett said: “We would urge anyone who may have been in the area to let us know if they saw anything suspicious, even if it seemed of little note at the time.

“Removing this quantity of tools may have required more than one person and a vehicle.

“We would urge people to be vigilant and let us know if they are any equipment matching this description for sale.

“Anyone with information can contact police on 101, quoting reference NP1445/19, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
