Police officers from the southside are urgently trying to trace the true owners of property believed to have been stolen.

The Extra was contacted by the East Renfrewshire Community Policing Team this week after previous attempts to find the owners of the seized property had failed.

On Christmas Eve officers executed a search warrant at an address in Busby. The warrant had been granted to search the premises for stolen property following a theft locally.

In addition to the property outlined on the warrant officers found other items they believe to be stolen.

These item have been retained at Giffnock Police Office and enquiry officers believe there is good reason to assume they have perhaps been taken from a shed, garage or other outbuilding.

The items in question are: one large family type bible, a wet suit, a bag containing a quantity of sub aqua equipment and a quantity of power tools by Black and Decker, Wagner and Wilkinson Sword as well as a brand new axe.

In order to progress this matter and report the individual involved to the procurator fiscal Police Scotland said it is essential they identify it.

A spokesman said: “There is every chance the items have come from more than one location and as far as we can tell none have so far been reported as stolen.”

Residents are urged to check, if they know they own any such items, that they still have them.

If you recognise the descriptions below please call in at Giffnock Police Office or call the non-emergency telephone number of 101.
