Police are appealing for information after theft and vandalism at a trailer park in Lockerbie.

Officers say a high-value theft was made from a trailer parked at Annandale Water Services in Johnstonebridge.

The theft is said to have taken place between 10pm on Thursday, August 25, and 6am on Friday, August 26.

On that same night, between midnight and 2.30am, August 26, a number of trailers had their curtains slashed whilst parked at Lockerbie Lorry Park in the same area.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Douglas said: “We are appealing to members of the public who were in these areas at the time, if they saw any persons or vehicles acting suspiciously or have any dashcam footage which may assist with our enquiries, to get in touch.

“We would also like to appeal to members of the public, particularly lorry drivers, to report any suspicious behaviour of persons or vehicles to police as soon as possible so that we can take the appropriate action.

“Please phone Police Scotland on 101 and quote either incident number 0498 or 0312 of August 26, 2022.”
