A man has been arrested and charged following a number of break-ins to businesses in the Fountainbridge area over the past four weeks.
Between 29th December and 16th January, the Taj Express on Dundee Street, Piatto Verde on Dundee Terrace, and Hair Lounge on Polwarth Crescent were all targeted with various quantities of cash and electrical goods stolen from inside.
An attempt was also made to break into the Pizza Corner restaurant on Polwarth Gardens during this time.
As a result of enquiries by local officers, a 35-year-old man was detained yesterday and was subsequently charged in connection with all of these incidents.
He will appear in court at a later date.
