Four men have been arrested and charged with alleged bogus workmen offences during an ongoing operation to tackle doorstep crime in Edinburgh.

As part of Operation Aristotle, detectives had been investigating a number of bogus workmen incidents across the Capital, which took place between 2009 and 2013.

In total, ten victims were defrauded of almost £400,000 during this time period.

The men aged 54, 26, 24 and 19 are scheduled to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court later today.
