TWO men were arrested following an attempted theft from a building site in Barrhead.

Officers from Police Scotland’s Roads Policing unit tracked down a van that the men were in, to another building site, where they were allegedly about to commit another theft.

Cops then arrested the males for dishonesty and road traffic offences following the incident last week. 

Roads Policing Scotland said: “Ending your bank holiday with early morning thefts from building sites in Glasgow and Ayrshire…

“The guys in this van didn’t count on bumping into GlasgowRP and AyrshireRP.

“Safely stopped. Arrested and charged – Dishonesty and RTA offences.”
