Sergeant Ally Goldie of the Larbert Community Policing team said: “This type of behaviour, which some may see as trivial, is distressing for the residents, some of whom are being repeatedly targeted.

If anyone has information on this recent antisocial behaviour or can provide descriptions or names of the persons responsible, they should call 101.
