Police get heavy on metal thieves

A MULTI-agency operation to combat the theft and transportation of stolen metal has taken place in Midlothian.

Officers from Lothian and Borders Police joined colleagues from VOSA, SEPA and BT Openreach for the two-week initiative, which targeted metal thieves operating in the area.

As part of the first phase of the operation, officers from Road Policing and Safer Communities, along with partner agency representatives, carried out road checks at Sheriffhall Park and Ride.
