Please Share This Story

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the British Transport Police (BTP) responded to reports of two teenagers allegedly tampering with parcels on a Royal Mail train at Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway. The incident took a concerning turn as the suspects also damaged signalling equipment during their intrusion.

The diligent response from BTP led to the immediate arrest of the 17-year-old and 18-year-old culprits, who were found inside a carriage on the train. Authorities have charged both young men with malicious mischief, theft, and threatening and abusive behaviour.

Though no items are believed to have been stolen, BTP officials discovered several parcels in the carriage that had been tampered with. The specifics of the tampering have not been disclosed in the initial reports.

The affected service provider, Royal Mail, expressed its cooperation with the British Transport Police during the ongoing investigation. The motive behind the tampering remains unclear, and the potential implications for the interfered parcels are under scrutiny.

BTP urges anyone with relevant information to come forward and aid in their investigation to ensure the security and integrity of postal services in the region. As the situation unfolds, authorities are determined to bring transparency to the case and deliver justice for those affected.
