Beggar’s across Perth have managed to scam their way into people’s minds by asking money for their “bus home”.
Whether people are just too vulnerable or not, the community of Perth have expressed their thoughts over beggars on the streets of Perth.
Now it seems the regular beggar’s on South Street claim they work for the RAF and the Royal Navy.
South Street is popular for attempted ATM muggings, Police Scotland have advised to be vigilant in the past.
The figures presented to the local authority scrutiny board show that reported housebreakings in Perth and Kinross have reduced by 21%, robberies have reduced by 25% and this period also saw a 42.9% increase in detection rates for drug supply, production and cultivation.
There was also a slight increase in common assault, which saw an increase of 15 crimes compared to this time last year.
The whole idea of this article is, is to not give money to strangers, but to donate to the Salvation Army or local charities.
Or even go out your way to buy them food and water.
