Commenting PC Andrew, of Aviemore Police Station, has the following advice:

“With the Cairngorms seeing a welcome increase in visitors now lockdown has eased, we would use this opportunity to remind visitors to make sure they remove all valuables from their vehicles and secure all windows and doors prior to enjoying a day out.

“Fortunately, crime of this type is very rare in this area but it’s best not to give an opportunistic thief any chances.

“In addition to removing all valuables and keeping all items out of sight, simple steps such as leaving the glove box empty and open can act as a deterrent.

“Registering high value items with www.immobilise.com can increase your chances of having your items returning to you should the unfortunate happen.

“Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Aviemore Police via 101 quoting reference number 1828 of 25th July, 2020.”
