Vehicles Stolen in Aberdeenshire & Aberdeen City.

Officers are urging residents to lock up their property after a number of cars were reported stolen from the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire areas.

Between Friday, 3 August, and Saturday, 4 August, two vehicles were stolen, a grey Citroen C1, from Morven Gardens, Westhill, and a red Vauxhall Corsa from Cairnwell Drive in the Mastrick area of Aberdeen. They have both been recovered.

A red Toyota Aygo registration SA18 OMH has also been reported stolen from the Sanday Road area of Aberdeen in the early hours of today, Mon, 6 August.

Detective Inspector Fionnuala McPhail said:

"We have had a number of reports of attempted break-ins over the weekend and we are appealing to anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in their neighbourhood to contact us particularly in the Westhill, Kingswells and Mastrick areas of Aberdeen.

"We would also like to trace four males who were seen in the Westhill area around the time these incidents have been reported as they may be able to assist us with our enquiries. They are described as being in their late teens and were all dressed in dark hooded tops with the hoods up.

"Three vehicles have been reported stolen, two of which have been recovered. We are appealing to anyone who has seen the red Toyota Aygo (SA18 OMH) to contact us."

DI McPhail continued:

"I would also urge homeowners to continue to review their security. Additional patrols are being carried out but please donít make it easy for opportunistic thieves and keep all your doors and windows locked at all times, even when you are at home.

"If you see anything unusual or suspicious please contact Police as soon as you can with as much information as possible, including descriptions of people and the make, model and registration of any cars.

"Police can be contacted on 101 and Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
