GV of the Isle of Canna taken from neighbouring Island Rhum. See Centre Press Story CPRAID. A tiny Hebridean island has been hit by its first crime in decades – a raid on its only shop. Thieves cleared the shelves of the community-run store on the Isle of Canna and made off with sweets, toiletries, batteries, and even hand-knitted hats made by the shop’s manager. The island, which has a population of just 26, normally has a crime rate of zero, and has no police station or even a special constable. It’s last reported crime was in the 1960s when a carved wooden plate was stolen from the Rhu Church and never recovered.
