Criminals are back to business

Chief Constable Iain Livingstone

IT'S ALMOST exactly a month since Iain Livingstone, Chief Constable of Police Scotland, said that crime had returned to pre-lockdown levels and that it 'was business as usual' for the dishonest across the country. It seems that way here as police report a series of incidents. Between 9.30am on Friday and 7.30pm on Monday, a house at Glenwell Avenue, Stranraer was broken into and a number of items stolen, including electrical goods and mobile telephones. Between the same dates, a number of items were stolen from a silver Citroen C3 car that had been left parked in Foundry Lane, Stranraer. Thieves struck struck at St Ninians Avenue, Stranraer, between 3pm on Sunday 26 June and 16.45hpm on Tuesday 28 June. A games console, mobile phone, cash and jewellery were taken. An 8' x 6' foot Ifor Williams trailer was stolen from Blackparks Industrial Estate, Stranraer, sometime over the last four weeks. The police would like to hear from anyone who saw a vehicle towing a trailer away from this area during the hours of darkness during this period. And a black Audi car was vandalised on Tuesday 30 June between 3.20pm and .45pm whilst parked on Main Street, Sandhead.
