Man charged after Dumfries and Annan supermarket dog thefts

A 51-year-old man has been charged after a number of dog thefts in Dumfries and Galloway.

The spate of incidents in Dumfries and Annan led police to issue a warning to dog owners about the dangers of leaving pets tied up outside supermarkets.

The man was charged at the weekend after what are described as "extensive" enquiries into offences which occurred between January and March.

He is expected to appear at Dumfries Sheriff Court at a later date.
