'Anti-crime' goods stolen in raid
Several bags of counterfeit clothes used to deter children from crime have been stolen.

The clothes were taken during a break-in at a portable cabin at Central Scotland Fire and Rescue's headquarters in Maddiston, Falkirk, on Wednesday.

The hut is used by Crucial Crew, an agency which teaches children about fire and water safety and the dangers of buying counterfeit goods.

A police spokeswoman: "This project is designed to educate children."

She added: "It is the children who lose out.

"These clothes were used by Trading Standards to show how counterfeit goods are not a bargain and how it relates to criminal activity."

She urged anyone with information or anyone who has been offered clothes to contact Central Scotland Police on 01786 456 000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
