An Edinburgh man has appeared in court in connection with the alleged theft of cars valued at more than £60,000 from an Elgin dealer.
Darren Malone faces three charges of theft of a motor vehicle and a further two charges of theft by housebreaking.
Three vehicles were reported stolen from the Hawco dealer on The Wards in Elgin in the early hours of January 14.
The 25-year-old made no plea when he appeared in private at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday (THURS).
Malone had his case committed for further examination and he was released on bail. A date is yet to be set for a future court appearance.
