Souters have been warned to remain vigilant despite a quiet last month for police.

In a report issued by police constable Conal McEwan, he said: “All in all, March was a quieter month than February, but please let’s not get complacent.

“Let’s continue to be vigilant by locking our properties up at night and taking note of any suspicious activities in our community.”

Of the 1188 anti-social behaviour incidents reporter throughout the Borders in March, 60 were in the Selkirk area.

A total of 13 of them are reported to have involved youths.

Police are still appealing for any information regarding the theft of a bike and power tools worth £500 from a shed in Chapel Street.
