We’re crack­ing down on ve­hi­cle crime and thefts

Rutherglen Reformer - - On The Beat - Pat O’Cal­laghan, Area Com­man­der, East Kil­bride, Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang

Over the last week, lo­cal com­mu­nity polic­ing of­fi­cers have been de­ployed in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang tar­get­ing ve­hi­cle crime and thefts.

Of­fi­cers have been de­ployed at the right times and most im­por­tantly in the right places.

In East Kil­bride, we also re­cov­ered a stolen ve­hi­cle due to tracker tech­nol­ogy the owner had in­stalled on their ve­hi­cle.

This is a great piece of kit, so if you are able it is a great way to pre­vent your car from go­ing far if stolen and as an added bonus it may lower your in­sur­ance cost.

Through struc­tured and in­tel­li­gence led in­ves­ti­ga­tion, I am de­lighted to re­port that three males were ar­rested in re­la­tion to theft by house­break­ing of­fences in the Cam­bus­lang area.

From a polic­ing per­spec­tive, we will con­tinue to carry out our planned pa­trols us­ing both our marked po­lice ve­hi­cles and un­marked ve­hi­cles.

In ad­di­tion, your lo­cal of­fi­cers will be sup­ported this week by cen­trally based spe­cial­ist of­fi­cers.

To­gether they will be tack­ling the ar­eas that you have iden­ti­fied as giv­ing you con­cern – vi­o­lence, an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour and theft.

If you see any­one act­ing sus­pi­ciously, or per­haps you no­tice a ve­hi­cle that’s parked in your street that isn’t usu­ally there, phone us.

It may just be a stolen ve­hi­cle that we can re­cover and re­turn back to its owner.

If you have any con­cerns please con­tact a mem­ber of your lo­cal polic­ing team on 101.
