Appeal for witnesses after graffiti attack in town centre

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a building in Robertson Street was daubed with graffiti on Tuesday (January 22).

The graffiti has now been removed.

Many people are out in town at this time of day and I would urge anyone with information to come forward and speak to us on the non emergency number 101 quoting serial 1517 of 22/1 or ring the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
