A teenager has been charged following the attempted theft of a motorcycle.

Around 10.55pm on Saturday 22nd June officers received a report of suspicious activity around a German-registered Yamaha motorcycle parked at Willowbrae Road.

Officers quickly responded and a 16-year-old male was arrested.

A report will now be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

Detective Sergeant Kevin Tait from Edinburgh’s Vehicle Crime Team said: “Thanks to the vigilance of the public and a prompt police response the theft of a very valuable motorcycle has been prevented.

“Tackling the theft of motorcycles remains one of our top priorities and through Operation Soteria we are continually making arrests for crimes of this nature and returning stolen bikes to their rightful owners.”
