The red Suzuki King quad bike, stolen from West Trodigal Cottage, Machrihanish, on Tuesday January 29, was found the next day on Bengullion Road.

During the attempted theft of a silver Ford Transit van on Witchburn Road, Campbeltown, at 11pm on Tuesday January 29, items were stolen and damage was caused to the van’s dashboard.
