Motorbike pair wanted for break-ins in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian

Two men on a motorbike are being sought in connection with a spate of break-ins across Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian.

Two riders on a red and white bike were seen acting suspiciously when an alarm was set off at Hugo Boss on Edinburgh's Multrees Walk in the early hours of Tuesday.

Ten minutes later, two men on a motorbike broke into a Chinese restaurant on Dundas Street, stealing cash.

Police are linking the incidents to several other thefts and break-in attempts in Musselburgh, Loanhead and Dalkeith

Det Sgt Dave Reilly, of Police Scotland, said: "It would appear that the same two men have been responsible for a number of break-ins, attempted break-ins and thefts across Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian.

"Anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around these locations late on Monday evening or in the early hours of Tuesday morning is asked to contact police immediately."
