A 37-year-old man has been charged with intending to commit theft at numerous houses in Dundee.
The man was arrested and charged after allegedly being seen in numerous gardens in Brackens Road, Strathmartine, in the early hours of Thursday morning.
A spokesperson for the force said: “Police Scotland would like to thank the residents who contacted us and directed our officers towards him, along with providing an excellent description of him.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to check on the security of any sheds, garages or outbuildings they may have, particularly if they contain anything valuable.
“Although no lock can be 100% secure, the harder it is for someone to gain entry without making noise or drawing attention to themselves, the less likely they are to succeed (or even attempt it).”
The man has also been charged with carrying tools with which he intended to commit theft.
He is due to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court on Friday.
