POLICE in Moray have made a series of arrests as part of their Operation Moravia campaign.
A number of areas were targeted for five days last week, including Lossiemouth, Fochabers, Hopeman and Lhanbryde.
According to police, high-visibility patrols were carried out in areas identified as having issues with anti-social behaviour. Road offences were also targeted.
As a result of the crackdown, according to police, one person was reported to the procurator fiscal for a serious assault and six people were reported for vandalism offences. Others were reported for theft and a range of disorder offences.
A total of nine people were charged with road traffic offences, ranging from speeding to using their mobile phones while driving. A further five drivers were dealt with for having vehicle defects.
Sergeant Alistair Bruce, from the Fochabers local policing team, said the operation was co-ordinated in response to issues raised by residents living in the Lossiemouth policing area.
"I would like to thank the people in the local community who continue to support us in identifying such issues, and would encourage them to continue providing information, which has been invaluable in helping us tackle the issues within the local area," he added.
