Police have recovered four cars that were stolen from outside their owners’ homes on January 19.
The cars, valued at more than £50,000 in total, were taken from various addresses in Newtongrange, North Middleton, Roswell and Bonnyrigg.
Three of the cars were taken when their owners left them unattended while defrosting in cold weather.
Chief Inspector Kenny Simpson, local area commander for Midlothian, said: “These arrests were a priority as officers believed the cars were being used to commit other offences.”
