Livestock injured

There have been several lambs found injured on Gigha and it appears that the lambs have been attacked by dogs. Police are investigating the incidents which have happened between February 1 and March 7.

Failing to stop

A dark-blue people carrier collided with another vehicle and failed to stop at the scene on the B842 near to Pennygown Lodge on Monday afternoon last week. Police are investigating the incident.

No licence or insurance

A 60-year-old man was arrested and charged on Main Street, Campbeltown, on Thursday afternoon last week when police enquiries revealed that the car he was driving had no insurance and he did not have a valid driving licence. A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Owner and driver charged

Two men, the 24-year-old driver and 38-year-old owner, were charged when it was discovered that there was no valid insurance for the vehicle.

The car was spotted on the A83 at Glenbarr on Friday night and police inquiries led to the driver being charged and the owner being traced and charged. A report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.

BT impostors carry out fraud

People are being reminded that legitimate companies will never ask for your bank details over the phone.

This follows an incident earlier this month when someone in Tarbert received a phone call from a man who stated he was calling from BT. He asked for the resident’s bank details and subsequently made £900 in unauthorised transactions using these details.

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