A FAMILLIAR resident of an Inverurie garden, who also happens to be one of Scotland’s best loved cartoon characters, was stolen from his usual spot over the weekend.
And Grampian Police are now investigating the theft of “Oor Wullie” in the hope that somone in area knows of his whereabouts.
Police say that the theft occurred between 8am on Saturday, (July 28) and 10am on Sunday (July 29), at a property at Davah Court and described the piece as “a distinctive large garden ornament of the popular character ‘Oor Wullie’”.
Grampian Police say they are keen to trace anyone who may have seen persons acting suspiciously in gardens around that area.
Investigating Officer, PC Alex Ritchie said: “The item taken is quite distinctive, of considerable size and has been removed from a garden in a sheltered housing complex. It was of much sentimental value to the owner who is quite upset and would unfortunately be very difficult to replace. Had anyone been seen in possession of this item, I’m sure it would stick in the memory.”
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Grampian Police on 0845 600 5 700 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
