Police said a 15-year-old and two 16-year-olds had been arrested and charged.

They are expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

Detective Chief Inspector Martin MacLean said: "Following a swift and extensive police investigation, my team has arrested three males in connection with a break-in and robbery on Morningside Drive.
