POLICE in Ross-shire are appealing for information after a housebreaking and theft of a car in Wester Ross.

The incident centred in a house in Morefield Place, Ullapool which was broken into between 1am and 9.20am on Saturday morning.

A grey Skoda Octavia VRS Estate was stolen.

Police said in an appeal issued today that the car was later recovered locally and is back with its rightful owners "but appears to have been driven a substantial distance".

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “While we are pleased the vehicle has been returned to its owners, we are looking to trace those responsible.

“Anyone with information about this incident, or anyone who was driving in the Ullapool area between the times in question with dash-cam footage is asked to contact police via 101 quoting incident number 1344 of February 15. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
