Police are continuing to carry out high-visibility patrols in Haddington on weekend evenings to keep people safe.
The patrols see officers deployed in the town centre to deal with incidents of anti-social behaviour and provide reassurance to the public.
On Friday night (October 4), police arrested and charged a 16-year-old youth who breached his bail conditions, as well as an anti-social behaviour order, when he was involved in a disturbance in the High Street involving a number of youths.
The youth appeared at Haddington Sheriff Court yesterday and was released on bail.
Another youth, also 16, was charged with a breach of the peace in relation to the same incident and he will appear in court at a later date.
On the following evening, officers issued fixed penalty noticed to three men who were involved in a disturbance outside a pub in Kilpair Street, as well as to another man who was found drinking in the street.
Local inspector Ian Mackay said: “While these incidents were relatively minor, they demonstrate our commitment to providing a visible presence within the local community in order to keep people safe.
“Our officers will continue to provide a highly visible presence in Haddington town centre on weekend evenings and will deal with any incidents of anti-social behaviour or criminality that arise.
“Anyone who engages in such behaviour should expect to be dealt with swiftly and robustly.”
