Three people have been reported to the Procurator Fiscal following a spate of housebreakings over the last week in East Lothian and Cocksburnpath in the Borders.
A 24-year-old woman, a 24-year-old man and a 31-year-old man have been charged with housebreakings at three properties in East Linton, one property in Dunbar, and three properties in Cockburnspath.
Sergeant Gordon Millar said: “I would encourage anyone who witnesses suspicious activity around East Lothian and the Borders to contact Police immediately.
“It’s suspected that the three people arrested are part of a larger criminal group currently within the area. The earlier we receive a report, the quicker we can respond, and this greatly increases the opportunities available for Police to trace the perpetrators.”
Members of the public can report any suspicious activity on 101 or alternatively, the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
