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.
