Man held af­ter four break-ins

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

a num­ber of re­ports of thefts from se­cured ve­hi­cles in the Farme Castle and Lloyd Court ar­eas of Ruther­glen. We be­lieve the per­pe­tra­tors may be us­ing a de­vice to over­come the se­cu­rity, with­out forc­ing en­try or caus­ing any dam­age. The ma­jor­ity of re­ports are be­ing re­ceived be­tween late evening and the early hours of the morn­ing.

Your lo­cal com­mu­nity polic­ing team are in­ves­ti­gat­ing these re­ports and we have in­creased both uni­formed and plain clothes pa­trols in the area. Lo­cal au­thor­ity war­dens will also sup­port po­lice ac­tiv­ity with pa­trols.

The lo­cal com­mu­nity con­tinue to as­sist us in our day to day polic­ing and I would ask for your help. If you see any sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or peo­ple, please con­tact us im­me­di­ately by di­alling 101. To help of­fi­cers with their en­quiries, where pos­si­ble please pass a de­tailed de­scrip­tion along with any reg­is­tra­tion num­bers of ve­hi­cles in­volved. This will as­sist us greatly dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of these crimes.

From a crime preven­tion per­spec­tive, please sim­ply adopt one rule.

Do not leave any valu­ables in your ve­hi­cles. Items such as satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems, re­mov­able stereo head units, iPads, lap­tops and mo­bile phones should not be left vis­i­ble or at all in ve­hi­cles. Tak­ing this sim­ple pre­cau­tion may pre­vent you from be­com­ing a vic­tim of ve­hi­cle crime.

If you can, park your ve­hi­cle within a garage or a well-lit area, as ve­hi­cles are less likely to be tar­geted in these ar­eas.

We will con­tinue to up­date you on the progress of our en­quiries through our so­cial media pages on La­nark­shire Po­lice Di­vi­sion Face­book page and on Twit­ter.
