They arrested a 15-year-old who was with a group of youths. He was also carrying cannabis. He received a formal reprimand for criminal damage and possession of a class C drug.
Sergeant Neil Billany, team leader, said: “Although not the most serious of offences, this is the kind
of crime that affects the quality of life of those that live and work in this area. By directing our patrols
to an area that attracts reports of anti-social behaviour, we have managed to catch a youth in the act and bring him to justice.
