Two men who are alleged to have been intending to commit theft have been arrested after police say they were sniffed out by a dog.
The men, aged 18 and 20, were arrested on Silver Birch Drive in Ballumbie in the early hours of Friday morning.
They are set to appear before Forfar Sheriff Court on Friday.
A spokesman for Tayside Police division said: “Two men aged 18 and 21 were arrested in the early hours of this morning (Friday May 14) having been found in the Silver Birch Drive area of Ballumbie in circumstances where they intended to commit theft.
“A local resident called police having seen two men in a garden and looking in cars, and a number of officers attended in the area.
“A dog unit also attended, and PD Dale successfully tracked from where the men had been seen and traced the pair hiding in bushes nearby.
“Items that could be used to commit theft were also recovered.
“Both men were arrested and are due to appear at Forfar Sheriff Court sometime today.”
