A man has been charged in relation to a series of alleged thefts by housebreaking in the North-east.

Police Scotland have also confirmed that the 37-year-old has also been charged in connection with other alleged thefts in Drumoak and Aberdeen.

“We are grateful to the community for its support and members of the public who assisted us while inquiries were carried out.

“If you see anything suspicious or unusual in your neighbourhood report it to police as soon as possible with as much information as you can including any descriptions of people or vehicles.

“Police can be contacted by calling 101.”
