Police have confirmed that two youngsters have received warnings after being caught kidnapping garden gnomes from outside a property in Blairgowrie.
Officers launched an appeal at the end of November after a pair of garden ornaments were stolen from a garden in the town’s Blackthorn Place.
The incident had taken place overnight on November 18.
But police have now confirmed that two boys have been traced and the ornaments returned to their home in the new housing estate.
Due to being below the age of criminal responsibility, the boys were each issued with a warning by officers.
