A 32-year-old man has been arrested and charged following the attempted theft of a vehicle in Church Street, Galashiels.
The incident happened at around 8pm on Friday 1 September, following a cold call at the address. The man was detained by officers a short time later. He appeared at Selkirk Sheriff Court on Monday 4 September. Galashiels Police said:
Cold calling is a crime that can affect anyone and those responsible, like bogus callers and rogue traders, are often extremely convincing in how they approach and interact with potential victims.
Please report any suspicious activity to Police on 101. If the person refuses to leave your door, or you feel threatened or scared – call 999 and ask for the Police."
Resurfacing improvements mean a Galashiels road will be closed next month.Read the full story ›
