Police are investigating a theft of 18 pairs of men’s boxers from a Clydebank shop last week.

Around 2pm on June 26, a woman filled a trolley at TK Maxx with £1,650 worth of goods including the boxers, seven handbags, three men’s t-shirts, towels, four pairs of men’s shorts and pillows. Cops have a positive line of enquiry.

Earlier in the day, at around 11am, a man with grey hair and glasses, aged between 50 and 59, tried to leave with a trolley full of curtains worth £500 from Dunelm stores in Clydebank. Staff stopped the man, who was wearing a red and white striped t-shirt, but didn’t detain him.

In a separate incident at 1.30pm on June 28, two women removed two pairs of shoes from Deichman Shoes in the town, only to return a short while later and buy a third pair.

And at 4.30pm the same day, a 43-year-old man was arrested for allegedly removing the security tag on a £50 DVD player and leaving the store. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

In another crime, a man aged 30-45 with a grey baseball cap and grey t-shirt and light shorts stole four Northridge jackets from Go Outdoors around 1.15pm on June 30. The blue with red trim jackets were worth a total of £550.

And more jackets worth £1,230 in total were stolen from the same store on July 2, said police.

Clydebank officers said anyone with information on any of the incidents should call them on 101.
