Warning after break-in spate

POLICE are warning people to make sure they are on guard against sneak-thieves.

Over the past few months there has been a rash of thefts from houses and out-buildings in Milngavie and Bearsden.

A Milngavie Police spokeswoman said: “Make sure all windows and doors are locked prior to going out or going to bed. Lock valuables away and out of sight. If you do discover a theft, report this to the police immediately and try not to touch anything that may possess forensic evidence.

“If you see anyone entering or leaving the garden or driveway of your house or that of your neighbours’ houses and you believe they are suspicious, call the police.”
