VIDEO: Police appeal for information as men caught on CCTV at Inverness car dealership

Police have launched an inquiry after two men were caught on CCTV in an Inverness car dealership.

Hawco Milburn, part of the wider Hawco Volkswagen Group, is located just off the busy Millburn Road roundabout on the approach to Harbour Road.

The break-in took place in the early hours of Friday.

The pair were seen inside of the dealership, which is full of expensive cars.

It is understood they forced their way in by breaking a window of the showroom.

Leaving empty-handed, the men smashed the back window of a red VW Polo.

Ken Hammond, brand manager of Hawco Volkswagen, said: “The police were called and our CCTV checked over but they never got away with anything.

“They broke a window of a car inside the showroom and tried to get into a locked key cabinet. We got them on CCTV but we have been told they are not identifiable. The police are conducting their investigations and they will come back to us in due course.

“I am very pleased there wasn’t a car stolen as that would have been their main goal.

“It is reassuring to us as it shows that the security side of Millburn is tight enough as they weren’t able to get into the protected key safe.

“We have no hints or clues as to who it was.

“It is very bizarre and very frustrating but obviously we will just have to crack on.

“It is absolutely business as usual for us.”

The incident is the third of its kind to occur in the Highland capital in recent months, with break-ins also taking place at the Culloden Car Sales and Top Car dealerships.

On the most recent incident, Detective Sergeant Greig Fraser said: “Our inquiries are at an early stage and I would ask anyone who may have information which could help us to come forward.

“We would also ask anyone who may have passed the area around that time to review any dashcam footage they may have.

“We are particularly interested in any sightings of two men and a light-coloured car seen in the area around that time.”

Anybody with any information is asked to contact police on 101.
