Police Scotland have issued a warning to the public after a crowd of 90 gathered in Sarquhar, as a result of the police arresting a man for allegations of inappropriate behaviour towards local females.

Between 5.30 pm and 7pm a number of officers had to be sent to deal with the incident, and three men were arrested for public order offences.

All are expected to appear at Dumfries Sheriff Court.

If you have any concerns about the safety of children then please contact the police rather than taking the law into your own hands."

Police investigate further remembrance charity thefts

Over remembrance weekend £150 was taken from the charity shop at St Mary's Greyfriars Church in Dumfries.

Volunteers run the shop to support local good causes including those caring for war veterans, their widows and dependents.

Janet McSherry, who manages the shop, discovered that the money was missing on Monday morning.

Members of the church are struggling to understand why people feel the need to steal from charity at a time when people are remembering great sacrifice and service.

This comes after a gang of four targeted poppy collection tins last week.

Police are appealing for more information in order to catch those responsible. Please contact Police Scotland on 101.
