Police said the 30-year-old from the Liverpool area had been charged over incidents in Inverurie, Stonehaven and Ellon, and the theft of two cars.

He has also been charged in connection with a high-value theft at the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre.

He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday.

The man has also been charged in connection with an incident at Murcar Golf Club in Aberdeen.

Det Insp Graeme Mackie, who is leading the enquiry, said: "We are currently following positive lines of enquiry to identify other suspects involved in the ATM crimes across the north east.
