Trouble on board ferry

A 62-year-old man was arrested on board a ferry at Kennacraig last  Monday (March 2) at midday.

It is alleged he behaved in an alarming manner. He was charged, held for court, and a report submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Lorry damaged

Police are investigating following an incident on Tuesday morning last week on the A83 near Furnace. A lorry’s driver-side mirror and trailer were damaged when struck by another lorry which failed to stop and report the collision.

No insurance

A routine police check on the A83 at Kennacraig on the morning of February 25 revealed a car that was stopped had no insurance and the driver, a man aged 33, was charged and issued with a £300 fixed penalty ticket with six penalty points added to his licence.


On Saturday evening a 24-year-old woman was issued with a £100 fixed penalty after police stopped the car she was driving. Checks revealed that the vehicle had an expired MOT certificate.

Police are investigating the above incidents and are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to phone 101 or anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
