TWO break-ins occurred in Forres over the weekend.
Police Scotland have not linked the incidents and have stepped up security around one of the sites.
Police were called to the Mosset Tavern on Gordon Street at around 12.45am on Friday, January 10 following a report of a break-in.
A 24-year-old man has been charged in connection with the crime and is due to appear at Elgin Sheriff Court at a later date.
Police also received a report of a break-in to the former Leanchoil Hospital on St Leonard's Road on Monday, January, 13.
Enquiries are ongoing and officers are appealing for anyone who may have heard or seen suspicious activity in the area during the weekend to contact police on 101, quoting incident number 0737.
An anonymous caller told the Gazette that fire extinguishers had been let off and put through windows in the much-loved Victorian building.
He added that NHS Grampian has now employed a contractor to erect a security fence around the site.
