Policein bogus crime warning
Monklands police are warning people about the “devastating effect” bogus crime has on victims, their families and communities.
Officers are asking residents to “be a part of the prevention” by looking out for these criminals and supporting vulnerable people.
They advise that if you see anyone suspicious you should: take a note of their description; if they provide a name write it down; and write down the registration number of vehicles they are using.
Lanarkshire’s operations Superintendent Raymond Higgins said: “We take bogus crime seriously and have dedicated officers that work tirelessly to identify suspects.
“We encourage you to be vigilant and contact us on 101 or 999 in an emergency if you see any suspicious activity or you feel you’ve been a victim.
“Know your rights and if you are not happy with work carried out, you can contact your local Trading standards via northlanarkshire.gov.uk.”
