Arrests Made

There was a burglary at a house on Cliffwood Avenue on Tuesday morning, 4th September.

Two men forced open the front door and stole a car using the keys taken from the house.

The Police were alerted and, following a short pursuit, they were arrested and taken into custody. The stolen car was recovered.

All in all, a positive result for the Police and our Community!

Attempted Burglary

Two men knocked on a door in the Firfield Road/Sibson Road area late on Sunday evening and, when they got no reply, climbed over the side gate into the garden. They were trying the rear patio doors when they were scared off by the occupant who was in at the time.

The Police were called and advised that another resident had reported two men of similar descriptions knocking on doors in a nearby street and asking about roofing work. They were described as white, wearing gloves and dark clothes with hoods pulled up. One was wearing a blue hoodie.

If you were in the area around 8 to 8.30 p.m. on Sunday, 26th August and saw anything suspicious, please tell the Police by dialling 101.

If you prefer to remain anonymous, you can pass on information through Crime Stoppers by dialling 0800 555 111.

 

Scam Phone Calls

Members have reported a surge in scam phone calls intended to panic recipients into paying debts they do not owe. The details vary but they all have the same message that threatens serious legal consequences if action is not taken at once.

It is very unlikely that you have any debts that you do not already know about. If you get one of these calls and are uncertain or worried, seek advice from relatives or friends before you do anything.

KEEP CALM AND NEVER PAY ANYBODY MONEY UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN ABOUT WHAT IT IS FOR AND WHO IS GETTING IT.
