Notes on crime
The theft by housebreaking which occurred between 12/03/12 and 14/03/12 at Menstrie Bowling Club relates to an attempt to open a rear door at the premises by forcing open the lock and kicking the door. Thankfully no entry was gained. Enquiry was carried out in relation to this incident but no residents could provide any information to assist in detecting it. At present there is no further enquiry available and it is complete.
The reported vandalisms for this period do not appear to be linked. The enquiry for both has been completed and there are no further lines of enquiry to carry out.
