A woman was set to appear in court today charged in connection with an incident of theft and an incident of robbery at the weekend.
The 38-year-old woman was arrested by police following the theft on Friday and robbery on Saturday, both of which occurred on Kirriemuir’s Bank Street.
The alleged victims were a 69-year-old man and a 68-year-old woman.
Eyewitnesses had reported seeing a large police presence in the Angus town on Friday night and again on Saturday afternoon.
One said: “I saw several police cars on the High Street. You don’t normally see that in Kirrie, so it was obvious something had happened.“
A police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a 38-year-old woman has been arrested.
“She is expected to appear at Forfar Sheriff Court today.
“We would like to thank the public for their assistance in this matter.”
