Police are appealing for information following the reported theft of a maintenance buggy from a Highland golf course.
A green and yellow John Deere Gator, used by greenkeepers at Invergordon Golf Course, was seen being driven away at about 10.10am yesterday by a man in his 20s wearing a blue hooded top.
The vehicles are worth several thousand pounds.
A police spokeswoman said that searches are being carried out in the area in the hope the machine has been dumped, adding: “There was no chase at the time, someone just happened to see what happened from a distance.”
Anyone who witness the incident or who has more information should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
