Boys charged with 35 vandalism offences in Fife

Two 12-year-old boys have been charged with 35 vandalism offences over a three-month period in Fife.

Cars and private houses were targeted throughout the Woodside and Auchmuty areas of Glenrothes, with the damage estimated to be in excess of £7,000.

A report detailing the offences has been submitted to the Reporter to the Children's Panel.

Sgt Graham Ross, of Police Scotland, thanked the public for their help.

He said: "Aside from the substantial financial loss suffered by the victims of these crimes, there was undoubtedly a significant impact on the wider community as they saw their neighbours' property being randomly damaged."
