Two “significant” arrests have been made in connection with a spate of burglaries in Hamilton and elsewhere.
A 35-year-old man was arrested in connection with a number of incidents.
Officers from the Criminal investigations Unit searched a residence and seized a number of electronic items that are believed to have been stolen.
A 26-year-old St George’s man was also arrested in connection with a separate burglary incident and suspected stolen items were seized.
Investigations remain ongoing. Police believe the items recovered are connected to burglaries committed in Hamilton.
Detective Inspector Derricka Burns, of the Criminal investigations Unit, said: “These are two significant arrests made by the officers of the Criminal Investigations Unit.
“We wish to thank those members of the public who have come forward and provided information to assist with the investigation thus far.
“There is still some property that has not yet been identified and we urge shop owners, particularly those who sell electronic items, to check their inventory for any missing property.”
Police are asking anyone with information on the burglaries within Hamilton or elsewhere to make contact.
