Man held after four break-ins
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.
