Police in Glenrothes have charged two youths in connection to a series of incidents where damage was allegedly caused to vehicles by bricks and stones being thrown from a footbridge.

The incidents happened around 9.00 p.m. on Saturday, February 7 on the B969 Western Avenue close to Collydean.

Officers subsequently apprehended a 14-year-old and 15-year-old.

Sergeant Kenny Greig, of Police Scotland, who is leading the investigation said: “These reckless acts show an utter disregard for the safety of others and could have resulted in somebody being seriously injured.

“I would like to thank the public for their assistance in providing us with the information so we can take action as shown by today’s successful activity.”

The result marks the latest success of the newly formed Glenrothes Community Team as officers continue to target those involved in anti-social behaviour in the community.

Sergeant Greig added: “There is no excuse for any type of anti-social behaviour which has a significant detrimental effect on the quality of life for residents.

“This behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”
