Police appeal after alarm scares off would-be thieves.

Three balaclava-wearing crooks tried to break into an engineering firm but were disturbed by the alarm.

The gang, who were carrying bolt cutters and other tools, were aiming to get inside McNair Engineering at Hillington Industrial Park around 9.10pm on Tuesday.

Police say the trio made off from the Lovat Place site when the intruder alarm sounded.

Inspector Jim Cast, from Johnstone, Renfrew and the villages community policing team, said:"If you saw or heard anyone acting suspiciously in this area then we would like to hear from you.

"We'd also ask drivers who may have been in the area at the time to check dash cam footage to see if it captured anything significant."

Meanwhile, officers are also probing a separate attempted break-in in Kilbarchan.

A would-be-thief targeted a home in the villages Fulton Crescent between 9am and 3pm on Tuesday.

The suspect never gained entry and made off.

Officers are also appealing for information over this incident.

Inspector Cast added:"Again, I would urge you to get in touch if you saw anything suspicious."
