POLICE in Strabane are requesting that the public to be vigilant this weekend.
They are advising people living in the Castlederg and Newtownstewart areas to be on the lookout for a small white van, which has “Dog Control’ written on it.”
A PSNI spokesperson said police were concerned that calls at houses by this vehicle may not be genuine.
The spokesperson said: “We are still looking into this, but we would urge the public to satisfy themselves as to the identity of anyone who should call with them about dogs. A genuine dog warden will have all the necessary identification with him.”
