Two women have been charged in connection with robberies at a sheltered housing complex in Dundee.

The pair, aged 21 and 40, were arrested following an investigation into two thefts and an attempted robbery in the buildings on Kinghorne Road and  Wedderburn Street.  

The break-ins were said to have taken place on Wednesday and Thursday last week.

Both women are due to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday.

Chief inspector Ross Fitzgerald said:  “Crimes such as these are reprehensible, they have the effect of undermining the usual sense of safety and security felt by residents.   

“I hope the arrests reported today leave residents reassured and confident that their local officers are determined to keep them safe.   

“I would like to extend my thanks to those members of the public who have contacted the police and offered that vital information which has helped progress our investigation and deliver quick arrests.”
