Piggy bank pinched by opportunist thief

BEWARE opportunist thieves... A piggy bank was stolen from a house in Sheuchan Street, Stranraer, when a passing thief took the chance to lean in a window left open in warm weather to take the bank. The incident happened between 10am and 11.45am on Sunday, August 16. Police Scotland say: "Police would ask the public to be ever mindful that opportunist thiefs are out and about looking for circumstances such as this. "If you are leaving your windows open, please do not leave any valuables on the window sill or in sight of anyone looking in the window. "If you are leaving the house, please remember close the window or to secure it on the latch so that it cannot be pulled open from the outside." Another unusual incident was the theft of a flag that same Sunday from Blackpark farm, Leswalt. The thief was driving a van with the characters 'DNY' on the registration plate. This is not the first time that a flag has been stolen from this location and the police would like to hear from anyone who has any information regarding this crime. And on August 18, staff at Ardwell Gardens discovered a number of high-value gardening tools to have been stolen including a strimmer, a hedge cutter and a rotovator. The items were last seen in June so could have been taken any time during the interim period. The police would like to hear from anyone who has information regarding this theft or who have been offered items similar to this for sale. You can contact police via the non-emergency 101 telephone number.
