A £1500 moped was recovered near the area with ignition damage, which had been previously locked and parked outside an address on Greenwood Avenue overnight.
The 21-year-old Beverley man was arrested and taken into police custody in connection with the break-ins.
The moped was been returned to its rightful owner early this morning and up to now, it would appear 10 garages have been entered along Greenwood Avenue, Burden Road, Sigston Road and Salmon Road in Beverley overnight.
Whilst officers were searching for the additional person who had also been seen acting suspicious at the back of Greenwood Avenue, an officer was approached by another member of the public who reported possible suspicious activity at Beverley News, Grovehill Road, Beverley.
On investigation, the officer found the shutters half up and the padlock forced open.
At the back of the property the officer located a dark figure wearing a balaclava and gloves. The person ran off, and the officer gave chase and secured the person.
The person was known to the officer and arrested for the attempt break-in.
Further enquiries have located previous stolen property from another commercial burglary which occurred in Beverley sometime between 25 January 25 and January 28.
A 38-year-old Beverley man remains in police custody, assisting officers with their enquiries.
