Matus Kotlar, 18, was arrested in connection with five incidents at the Glasgow schools.
A teenager has appeared in court accused of entering two Glasgow schools without permission during class time.
Matus Kotlar, 18, was arrested in connection with five incidents at the schools in the city's south side.
Police were initially called to Holy Cross Primary School at 2.20pm on Thursday, October 4 to reports of a man entering the building without permission.
A similar incident took place at the nearby Holyrood Secondary School the following day at around 4.10pm.
Following investigations, it was discovered another three incidents took place at the secondary school over the past week.
The accused was later traced and charged.
At Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday, Kotlar denied the allegations that he entered the buildings with intent to commit theft. He will stand trial in January.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman confirmed that officers were working with the schools following the alleged incidents.
She said: "Officers continue to offer advice and guidance to both schools with regard to enhancing security."
Police are also investigating a separate disturbance which took place outside Holy Cross Primary School at around 2.20pm on Wednesday, September 26.
The police spokeswoman added: "Enquiries are ongoing."
