Tayside Police are asking for help to find vandals who struck outside a police station.
The outer panel of a public-use defibrillator was targeted sometime before 6:15pm yesterday, outside Kirriemuir Police Office.
A police statement said: “While this has happened outside the police office, this office is not permanently staffed. Local CCTV is currently being reviewed.
“Fortunately the defibrillator itself was undamaged, but the damage to its housing means that it has needed to be re-located to the kiosk within the Co-Op shop nearby in Roods until the necessary repairs have been carried out.
“This obviously has the potential to have significant consequences should someone require the defibrillator outwith usual opening hours for the Co-Op, which are 6am to 11pm daily.
“If you have any information which could assist our enquiries, please call 101 or speak with any police officer. Also, information can be given anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. Our reference is CR/22777/18.”
