A HELENSBURGH teenager was apprehended by police last week after reportedly smashing a shop window in the town centre and running off.

Police received a report of a business window being smashed in Sinclair Street at around 8pm on Thursday evening, May 27 and information passed to officers claimed that a male youth had run off along East King Street.

Officers later stopped a suspect matching the description near to the Co-op car park and returned him to the location of the incident, where he was allegedly identified as having been responsible for breaking the shop window.
