Police appeal over incidents

A POLICE probe is ongoing into a spate of incidents at Innerleithen which have included an assault, fire-raising and vandalism between Tuesday and Saturday of last week.

They happened around Leithen Road, Buccleuch Street and Montgomery Street.

On Monday a police spokesman stressed: “We would reassure the community that these incidents are linked and positive lines of inquiry are ongoing.” Yesterday, Inspector Mike Wynne commented: “We want to hear from anyone who has information. The individual may be eligible for a cash reward if it leads to an arrest and charge of those responsible.”
