Clothing bins throughout the Falkirk area are being targeted by thieves

 

Police are investigating a series of thefts from clothing banks in Falkirk, Grangemouth, Bainsford and Stenhousemuir.

The items were taken from various outlets between May 6 and July 4, with many of the banks’ locks being damaged so thieves could gain entry.

Sergeant David Ferguson said: “The clothes within these bins were intended for charity but may now be sold on for profit. We are currently trying to establish whether all of these incidents are linked and would urge anyone with information relevant to our investigation to get in touch.

“In addition, anyone who sees any suspicious activity around any clothing banks is also asked to contact police immediately.”

Clothing bins targeted so far include those at Asda in Grangemouth and Stenhousemuir, Falkirk’s Central Retail Park and the Co-op in Bainsford.

Call Police Scotland on 101 if you have any information regarding these thefts.
