Speeding drivers caught by police
MOTORISTS have caught the attention of traffic officers this week after travelling at excessive speeds on the A82.
On August 30, a 21-year- old man was stopped after allegedly travelling at speeds of more than 100 mph in a 60 mph zone.
The same day, near Tyndrum, a 41-year- old motorist was allegedly detected travelling at more than 88mph in a 60mph zone.
Later that evening, again near Tyndrum, a 57-year- old man was detected travelling at 87mph in a 60mph zone.
Police sergeant Alan Moore said police units were on patrol in the area and anyone caught speeding would be fined or reported to the procurator fiscal.
Thieves may have been disturbed
A BREAK in at a Connel boatyard may have been disrupted before any theft took place, but officers still want to know of any information about people in the area at the time of the serious breaking and entering.
A shed at Fisherman’s Wharf at Connel had been broken into and a gate had been cut open.
Conducting the enquiry, police constable Fraser Anderson wants to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious between 7pm last Thursday, August 27, and 11am on Friday August 28.
Search on for man seen in Gallanach
POLICE are searching for a man in his 50s with a Liverpudlian accent who they would like to eliminate from their enquiries.
The man, believed to be a visitor to the area, is described as white with long hair tied up in a pony tail. He is believed to have been in the Gallanach area of the town between 6pm and 10pm last Friday when a theft occurred and may have vital information about the crime.
