Appeal for information over Stonehaven vandalism


Officers in Stonehaven are appealing for information following a vandalism incident at a local cricket pitch.

Between 4:00pm on Friday, June 10 and 10:30am on Saturday, June 11 a tarpaulin owned by Stonehaven Cricket Club, which is used to cover the cricket pitch at Mineralwell Park in the town, was vandalised.

As a result of the vandalism the tarpaulin was torn, causing a low three-figure sum of damage.

Constable Steven Inglis of the Kincardine & Mearns Community Policing Team based in Stonehaven, said: “This act of vandalism was entirely needless and has negatively impacted the local cricket club.

“If anyone saw anyone acting suspiciously in Mineralwell Park on that Friday evening or has any other information about the incident, I would ask them to contact Police Scotland on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
