FOUR cases of anti-social behaviour were reported in Peebles last month, according to the police.

Details for the period from December 11, to January 9 include an allegation of teenagers throwing snowballs on the south side of Peebles on December 15. Those responsible made off before police got to the scene.

On December 16, officers warned a group of youths in Bridgegate after a report was made of possible damage to a vehicle. Police inspected the car and found no damage.

On New Year’s Eve, a resident complained about loud music on Peebles High Street prior to the start of the town’s Torchlight Procession. The complainer was advised to contact Scottish Borders Council as this was an organised event.

Finally, on January 1, officers stopped a group of women who were trying to fight a man over a minor disagreement on Peebles High Street.

Although there were no reported incidents of drugs or alcohol misuse by youths this month, officers are continuing ‘proactive intelligence work’ and patrols.
