A 37-year-old man has been charged in connection with an alleged burglary in Threemiletown, after a police search of a home in Winchburgh.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about recent house-breaking incidents in Threemiletown and Winchburgh to get in touch.

Detective Sergeant David Black of the Community Investigation Unit said: “Tackling housebreaking and acquisitive crime remains a priority in West Lothian.

“Opportunistic criminals will look to take advantage of this time of year, when homes are filled with expensive gifts and other items and so I would urge members of the public to ensure that their homes, outbuildings and vehicles are kept secured at all times.
