A first for us in having to report crime at the new Greenhall Village, High Blantyre.
Residents in Shott Drive, Greenhall Village woke up today to a disturbing scene. Several of their door handles in the new Avant Homes estate in High Blantyre had been tampered with, in what is perceived to be attempted break-ins.
Although nobody appears to have entered any homes, residents have been left with damaged doors and locks. Pictured are two of the handles tried at neighbouring properties.
The locks appear to have score marks and damaged caused by a cutting instrument, fuelling further that the recent spate of kitchen knives found discarded elsewhere in Blantyre, are maybe being used to break into locks.
One alarmed resident told us, “As there’s still a lot of work ongoing and there are loads of site workers and subcontractors, these people would not look out of place. Workers are going in and out of half finished houses all the time therefore some people wouldn’t give it a second thought. “
Were YOU affected by this last night or in recent days?
