Police in Edinburgh have arrested and charged an 18-year-old man for over twenty offences committed under the Wireless Telegraphy Act.
The crimes, which included offensive remarks, took place between June 2014 and January 2015. They related to interference with communications on private radio networks that caused disruption to various locations in the Capital, including Edinburgh Airport and Edinburgh Castle.
As a result of five months of partnership investigation between the local Community Policing Team, Ofcom and the British Transport Police, an address at Craigmillar was searched on Monday (February 9) and equipment was recovered.
The matter is now being reported to the Procurator Fiscal.
