Detective Inspector Fionnuala McPhail said: “One man has been charged in relation to these incidents, however our inquiries are still very much ongoing.
“If anyone recalls hearing or seeing any suspicious behaviour in the Cove area of Aberdeen on Saturday or the early hours of Sunday morning I would ask that they contact us on 101, quoting reference 1105 of January 13.
“Additional patrols have been carried out in the Cove area since the weekend and if anyone has any concerns or information they can speak to any of the local officers out on patrol.
“I would also take this opportunity to remind vehicle owners not to leave valuable items in the vehicles overnight or when left unattended and certainly never on open display.
“Always ensure your vehicle is locked when not in use.”
