The trio, aged 44, 25 and 20, allegedly tried to get into a Drainie Way property in Lossiemouth in the early hours of Sunday.
The 20-year-old has also been charged with allegedly possessing an offensive weapon.
PC Andrew Kerr said: “I’d like to thank the public for supporting us while inquiries were carried out. We are committed to keeping people safe and crimes of this nature will be thoroughly investigated.
“We continue to urge people to review their home security.”
