A 32-year-old man has been charged in connection with the thefts of numerous cars parked outside leisure centres in East Dunbartonshire.

Thousands of pounds worth of vehicles have vanished, particularly from leisure centre car parks, since the beginning of the year.

A police spokesperson said the man was arrested outwith the area late last night (Wednesday) and also faces charges of vehicle thefts throughout Glasgow.

He was detained and is due to appear at court today.
