Castle Douglas Co-op cigarette raid arrests made

Two men have been arrested after a break-in at a south of Scotland store in which cigarettes were stolen.

It follows an incident at the Co-operative site on Cotton Street in Castle Douglas on Monday morning.

Police said two men from north east England, both in their early 40s, had been arrested and were expected to appear in court on Wednesday.

They added that investigations were still ongoing into a spate of similar break-ins in recent weeks.
