PO­LICE in Lochaber have recorded an in­crease in house break-ins.

Home own­ers are en­cour­aged to re­main vig­i­lant at all times as the most re­cent break inns have taken place while homes have been un­oc­cu­pied.

A po­lice spokesper­son said: ‘ Tak­ing pre­cau­tions such as leav­ing lights on while you are away and ask­ing neigh­bours to keep a watchful eye are lit­tle things that go a long way in the preven­tion and de­tec­tion of these crimes.’

Any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity or strange/un­known ve­hi­cles in lo­cal area should also be re­ported to po­lice as a mat­ter of ur­gency.

Dur­ing the early hours of Sun­day Jan­uary 29, a mo­bile phone was stolen from the Crofter Bar, High Street, Fort Wil­liam.
