A 31-year-old man has been charged in relation to alleged intended thefts in the Buckpool area of Buckie.
He is expected to appear at Elgin Sheriff Court today.
Police said they received a number of complaints from members of the community of a man allegedly entering gardens during the night.
Nothing was stolen from these reported incidents.
Sergeant Robbie Williams said: “I would like to thank the members of the community who called in to report alleged suspicious behaviour. If you hear or see anything unusual in your community please always call the police on 101 to report it, even if nothing is taken.”
