A LARGE Guide Dog charity collection box which was stolen from an Inverness supermarket has been recovered, police have confirmed.

The charity box, which is shaped like a life-size dog and two puppies, was taken from the Co-op in Telford Street after a thief broke in at around 2am on Tuesday.

Although the box will be returned to its home, police said its contents were not recovered.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: "We are happy to confirm the golden retriever was recovered and is to be reunited with their owner."

A 36-year-old man was arrested and charged in connection with the incident, and was expected to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday.
