"A concerned member of the public contacted Police Scotland yesterday afternoon at midday to report concerns with regards a suspicious blue vehicle that had been sighted driving about residential streets in Kelso, Scottish Borders, with two males within.

The vehicle registration was given which relates to a blue Ford Transit Drop side lorry. This vehicle is registered to a male who is known for his involvement in Rural Crimes of dishonesty throughout Scotland and the North of England.

We are asking people to remain vigilant, check the security of their property, outbuildings, sheds and garages and to report any suspicious incidents to Police Scotland via 101. We also ask that even partial registration numbers could be noted and passed to police if known as further enquiry can be completed with such information and may also link in with other details given by other members of the Rural Alert group".
