Four local youths, linked with anti-social behaviour in the Kennoway area, are due to appear in court from police custody.

The quartet, two aged 17, one 18-year-old and another aged 21, were expected to appear today (Tuesday) at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on charges of assault, theft and resisting

police arrest.

Community Inspector Tom Brown said: “The Kennoway area has been blighted of late with youth anti-social behaviour, along with violent and intimidating conduct at the hands of a few local youths.

“In tandem with Campaign Against Violence resources, local officers will endeavour to support the local community and take robust action against those individuals intent on causing misery.”

Insp Brown added that he had attended last night’s public meeting on this very matter in Kennoway’s Sandy Brae Community Centre.

“I appreciate the concerns of those present and the community’s plea for action,” he said.

“I can reassure the residents of Kennoway that Police Scotland will continue, where evidence exists, to take robust action against those youths engaging in violent and intimidating behaviour.

Anyone with any information on those involved in violent crime and anti-social behaviour in the Kennoway area, is asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where their information will be treated with the strictest confidence.
