Men arrested over high-value thefts in Edinburgh

Five men have been arrested and charged in connection with high-value thefts from several Edinburgh housebreakings.

It follows a search of a Ferry Road property on Tuesday where various items were recovered from inside.

About £32,000 worth of alcohol, paintings and jewellery, were seized after inquiries revealed the property was to be sold to online pawnbrokers.

The men aged 51, 24, 25, 22 and 28 are due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
