Three men have been arrested and charged in connection with a spate of vehicle thefts in Lanarkshire.
Between March and June this year, there were 28 vehicles stolen and a number of fuel thefts across the region, Police Scotland said.
The arrests follow public appeals from officers for help in their investigations.
The three men – aged 23, 26 and 27 years old – are expected to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Monday, June 27.
Police urged people to make sure their cars were locked and no valuables were left on display.
Detective inspector Laura Sands, from Lanarkshire CID, said: “We’d like to thank the public for their assistance with these enquiries.
“At this time, we’d also want to remind the community to take care to secure your vehicles at all times and ensure that any valuables are kept out of sight, to deter any opportunistic thieves who may be in the area.”
