“He was also subject to bail conditions which were allegedly breached and as such has been subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal in connection with this.

“Officers have been conducting additional patrols of the area which has led to arrests being made.”

On Wednesday, August 11, a Volkswagen Golf was stolen from Caledonian Road which was full of parcels being delivered in the area.

A 25-year-old man has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

And on Tuesday, August 17, officers attended a property on Laurel Drive along with local authority housing officers to serve an eviction notice.

A large quantity of stolen parcels were recovered and are now in the process of being returned to the delivery company to ensure the rightful owners receive their goods as soon as possible.

Inspector Mulholland added: “We continue to work closely with our partners at North Lanarkshire Council to make Craigneuk a safer place to live.
