Message from Oban Police


There have been a number of boat sheds and business premises broken into in the areas around Oban including Appin, Benderloch and Archattan over the past 2 weeks.

This seems to have been happening overnight and the items stolen seem to be mostly outboard engines and light plant type equipment.

We are doing everything we can to address this matter and working with our colleagues at Northern Constabulary who have also suffered losses.
We have arranged for targetted patrols in the area and CID are pursuing various lines of enquiry, our Divisional analysts are reviewing crime patterns and profiles and we are also linking in with transport networks, both road and sea, to detect the persons responsible. 
I hope this will go some way to providing reassurance to the local community and please donít hesitate to contact us if you require any further information. 

We are advising the community to take sensible security precautions and will be highlighting this on Oban FM on Sunday morning
