Pair held over Scotland-wide 'break-in' spree

Two men have been charged with committing a spate of break-ins at commercial premises across Scotland - including in Fife.

The pair, both aged 31 and from the south of England, were detained after seven break-ins between last Sunday and yesterday in Glenrothes, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Forres and Elgin.

They are due to appear in court today.

Detective Sergeant John Lumsden, from Aberdeen CID, said: "Police Scotland is committed to tackling serious and organised crime and we rely on information from our communities to help us. 

"I want to thank the public for their assistance with our investigation and colleagues at North Wales Police who were also involved.

"Our enquiries continue and anyone with information about any break-ins should contact us on 101, or make a call anonymously to the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
