Police are seeking witnesses/information on a series of alleged crimes over the past week.

Overnight into Sunday an attempt was made to gain entry to a Ford Transit parked on Muirfoot Road, Rigside. A Police Scotland spokesperson said “This follows on from a number of thefts from commercial vehicles throughout the area, including Lesmahagow and Douglas.

“The target is tools left overnight in vans. Please consider what valuables are required in your vehicle overnight, and store items not required outwith the vehicle. It is likely that those responsible are travelling in a vehicle, given the multiple areas in which thefts have occurred, so please report all suspicious vehicles in your locality to 101.”

Also overnight into Sunday the greenkeepers shed was broken into at Lanark Golf Club, Whitelees Road Lanark. An Oregon C5-5020 chainsaw and a hedge trimmer were stolen.
