A HELENSBURGH teenager has been charged with vandalism after allegedly smashing a glass door panel in a block of flats.

The 17-year-old girl from East King Street is said to have caused the damage at Maitland Court on Monday, August 19.

She will be referred to the children’s reporter in connection with the alleged offence.

Police say efforts to address vandalism in the town are continuing after the Advertiser reported on the scale of the problem earlier this month.

Area inspector Roddy MacNeill described it as “off the scale” and last week praised the “very positive response from the public regarding those possibly responsible”.
