Lobster: A delicacy

RATHER than shelling out for lobsters, someone pinched 79 of them from the quay at Port Logan. Police say the thieves struck over the course of the last two to three weeks. The lobsters were being stored in fish boxes and all had distinctive yellow bands round one of their claws. Officers say: "Anyone with information regarding this crime or has been offered lobsters for sale should contact the police at Stranraer." And police are also asking for information about a man seen trying car door handles in Stranraer. "About 7.45pm on Wednesday 8 July, a suspicious male was observed trying car door handles in various streets in Stranraer including Back Rampart, Agnew Crescent and Sheuchan Street. "The male is described as being around six foot tall with ginger beard and moustache wearing blue jeans and a grey hoodie. "Stranraer Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen this person at the locations mentioned on the date in question. "The police would like to remind the public to make sure that they are properly locking their cars when leaving them unattended and to ensure that no valuables are left in sight." Meanwhile a caravan left unattended over the winter has been broken into. "Between 15 October 2019 and 6 July 2020, a Bailey Pagaent caravan at Sandmill, Sandhead was broken into. A sky window was removed from the caravan and fishing equipment was stolen."
