POLICE officers in Cumbernauld are appealing for the public’s help after a number of car break-ins throughout Cumbernauld, late last week. 

Appeals launched online suggest that a number of sticky fingered thieves have burst their way into vehicles throughout Cumbernauld in a bid to grab any goods which they’ve eyeballed.

Officers at Cumbernauld police station have since launched an information appeal, and are urging that anybody with any relevant information comes forward.

It’s not known what items were stolen from any of the vehicles involved, though the police appeal confirms that vehicles throughout the town were targeted last week.

Police say they are looking for information on the thefts of contents from three vehicles, all from different areas of Cumbernauld, last Thursday (14th May).

The first took place in Oak Road, while the second was in Hornbeam Road – both streets in the Abronhill area of the town. Meanwhile, police officers have said that the third theft occurred in Stonylee Road, in the North Carbrain area of Cumbernauld.

A spokesperson for the Cumbernauld division of Police Scotland confirmed that they were “appealing for information”, after a number of thefts from “motor vehicles” throughout Cumbernauld on May 14th. 

Meanwhile, in yet another vehicle-related crime, police officers issued an appeal yesterday evening (18th May), seeking information for locals after an Audi was vandalised on Saturday. 

Police say that an Audi was vandalised on Saturday 16th May, near Cumbernauld Primary School, as the owner walked his dog. 

In appealing for anybody with information to come forward, a spokesperson for the Cumbernauld division of Police Scotland confirmed that an “Audi motor vehicle” had been “vandalised whilst the owner walked his dog at the play park near Cumbernauld Primary School,” on May 16th. 

Anybody with information is asked to contact Cumbernauld Police Station on 101 or, alternatively, anyone who wishes to provide information anonymously can telephone Crimestoppers UK on 0800 555 111.
