ON THE BEAT

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Last week com­mu­nity of­fi­cers in Cam­bus­lang re­ceived re­ports of four theft by house­break­ings in the area.

Of­fi­cers acted im­me­di­ately and be­gan speak­ing to res­i­dents within the lo­cal com­mu­nity, gath­er­ing ev­i­dence to ar­rest the in­di­vid­ual re­spon­si­ble. Fol­low­ing a pos­i­tive line of en­quiry, in the early hours of Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 7, we ar­rested a 41-year-old man who was charged with four al­leged house­break­ing of­fences.

The man was held in cus­tody to ap­pear at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on Oc­to­ber 8 where he was re­manded in cus­tody.

This sends a strong mes­sage to any in­di­vid­ual con­sid­er­ing com­mit­ting this de­spi­ca­ble crime.

We will not tol­er­ate these crimes be­ing com­mit­ted in our com­mu­nity and will do all we can to brings those re­spon­si­ble to jus­tice

I would ad­vise all res­i­dents to con­tinue to adopt sim­ple crime preven­tion ad­vice by en­sur­ing your house alarm is work­ing and set when you are leav­ing your prop­erty or go­ing to bed at night. Timer switches for lights are also a great way to help make your prop­erty less ap­peal­ing to thieves.

Lo­cal of­fi­cers also re­ceived
