Bank raid appeal- a week on

AN appeal for information on the Langholm bank raid has been made, a week on from the incident.

And police continue to regularly patrol the town in a bid to reassure residents.
The high street branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland was broken into early last Friday morning and money stolen.
Appealing for witnesses today, Chief Inspector Stephen Stiff said: “Officers have been out and about in the Langholm area since the raid to provide reassurance to the community and to ensure that anyone who may have seen or heard anything which might help in the investigation gets a chance to approach them to pass on that information if they want.
“As we approach the one week anniversary of the crime we will continue to have officers out and about in the community in an effort to speak to anyone who may have been in the town a week to the night it happened, just in case they saw or heard anything which might help us. Even the smallest piece of information can be helpful in piecing together the facts in what is a fairly large and complex enquiry, and so we urge people to approach any of our officers on patrol if they have any information which might help.”
