Follow extensive enquiries undertaken by officers in the Divisional Alcohol & Violence Reduction Unit (DAVRU) the men were arrested in connection with these incidents.

"Thank you to all those who provided information in connection with this investigation."

She added:

"Acquisitive crimes in the Moray area are rare so when they do happen we use every resource available to us to detect them.

"It goes without saying that local businesses should be able to operate without the fear of being targeted however it is crucial that owners think about having robust security measures in place to deter potential thieves.
