COPS in Barrhead were alerted to two reports of anti-social behaviour over the weekend following a crackdown on the issue.

Officers attended the incidents on Friday, May 12, and Sunday, May 14 on Main Street in the town.

After carrying out their investigations, police found that no criminality took place on either of the occasions.

We previously reported that residents have been left concerned following a rise in anti-social behaviour in the area.

Last week, officers announced that they will be carrying out patrols in the town following reports of the issue.

Providing an update on the patrols, a spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Between Friday, May 12 and Sunday, May 14, there were two reported incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Main Street area of Barrhead.

“Enquiries have been carried out and no criminality was established on either occasion.

“Additional patrols are to continue in the coming weeks, with officers providing reassurance to the community as well as engaging with young people and discouraging anti-social behaviour.

“I would stress that the vast majority of young people do not come to the attention of police, but we know a small minority do sometimes become involved in anti-social behaviour and their actions can have a negative impact on the lives of others.”
