Posting from the Kintyre forum.
STOLEN from Oran Mor last night. Piper Lorne MacDougall needs these like he needs oxygen - lowlife should not get away with it, please share.
Our good friend Lorne MacDougall had his pipe case stolen from the Oran Mor in Glasgow last night. In it were his highland pipes, border pipes, whistles and an iPad mini. It is quite a big black case and has a red bagpiper logo on the side, its very heavy and not easy to carry. Please share this news and help him get it all back, thanks in advance!!

[Ed note: What more can happen to this talented young man,mugged last year for his mobile phone and now this happening with all his musical instruments stolen.
As described,a big black case with a red bagpiper logo.
If you hear of anyone trying to sell or anything related to this incident,please notify the Police immediately.]
Happy to report they're found now. From Lorne, half an hour ago:
Happy to report that I now have my pipes returned, someone claimed to have found them in the street and wanted to meet me, so I sent the police and they got them back for me. I can't thank you all enough for your help, support and offers of help lending instruments etc. Lesson learned! x
Excellent news glad to hear it.
