Teenage girls charged following damage to property in west end of Forres

Police have charged two females, aged 13 and 14, following reports of damage caused to properties in the west end of Forres recently.

They will be reported to the Youth Justice Management Unit.

Inspector Tony McCullie at Forres Police station said: “Unfortunately we have seen an increase in anti-social behaviour in Forres which has involved youths damaging property.

“These acts are upsetting for the owners of the properties concerned, not least the financial impact it has on them.

Appeal to parents

“Officers in Forres are working tirelessly to track down those responsible and the local community can be assured that we will deal with them accordingly.

“Community policing is at the heart of what we do and officers work closely with partner agencies as we are aware of the upset that this form of behaviour can have. I would also appeal to parents to assist us in taking an interest into where their children have been and who they have been with.

“We have officers patrolling in the area and anyone with any concerns should contact Police Scotland on 101.”
