Police have arrested a teenager after an Elgin war memorial was vandalised last month.
The silhouette of a First World War Tommy soldier was removed from the New Elgin memorial after being repeatedly attacked by vandals.
Inspector Andrew Wilson from Elgin community policing team said: “As a result of extensive inquiries, today my officers charged a 17-year old male with vandalising the silhouette of a First World War Tommy Soldier located at the New Elgin War Memorial.
“I would like to thank members of the public who came forward with information.”
A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
