Man arrested for Scooter Theft!

POLICE have arrested a man in connection with the theft of a young Stranraer girl's scooter. The incident was featured on the front page of the "Free Press"a fortnight ago.

We revealed that little Mirren Hannah (5) had won the scooter in a competition run by The Pet Shop in Stranraer's St John Street.

But Mirren's joy turned to despair just one day after winning the competition, when the scooter was pinched.

Police this week praised our coverage of the incident, with a spokesman saying

"The theft was featured in a front page story in the "Free Press".

"Thankfully, there has now been a successful conclusion to the story.

"A 22-year-old local man has been arrested and charged with the theft and the scooter has been recovered".

This week, Mirren's mum Kirsty said the little girl was

"over the moon"to get her new scooter back.

"She is highly delighted", she added.

Now she keeps it hidden in the house.

Kirsty said that since the story was in the "Free Press" everyone she met had asked if Mirren had got her scooter back.
