HELENSBURGH’S top cop has appealed to the public to help officers catch vandals causing “mindless damage” to parts of the town.

A number of vandalisms have reportedly occurred during the last two weeks and all appear linked, according to police, as they refer to the same individual formerly resident in Helensburgh.

Fresh graffiti has been reported at Millig Street, along the waterfront near Kidston Park, and at Castlewood Court.

Police say they have a line of enquiry, but are keen to hear from anyone who has witnessed a person, or persons, defacing the town.

Area inspector Roddy MacNeill said: “The cost to rectify such mindless damage is high and removes finances from more deserving and needful causes especially in these unprecedented times of need.”

Anyone with any information should contact Helensburgh police station.
