Due to a number of vehicle thefts in recent weeks in Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen, Police Scotland is urging members of the public to be extra vigilant.
Two Ifor Williams trailers were stolen between 5.00pm on Sunday 9 June and 8.30am on Monday 10 June from a farm at Stonehaven and have a combined value of a mid-four figure sum of money.
A Junior white and orange KTM 85 SX bike and an adult orange and white KTM 150 SX bike were stolen from a rural property by Kintore sometime between 8.00pm on Sunday 9 June and 8.00am on Monday 10 June. They have a combined value of a high four figure sum of money.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the trailers and bikes are asked to contact Police Scotland quoting references 0641 of 10 June for the KTM bikes, and officer A8001 for the trailers.
Meanwhile, Officers were appealing for assistance to trace four outstanding vehicles stolen from Alford, Cults and Rosemount. The public were thanked for their assistance following the recent appeal to trace the four stolen vehicles. All but one car has now been recovered - the red Mini Countryman (Reg BH03 PEH) stolen from the Earlswells Road area of Cults in the early hours of Thursday 13 June.
Anyone with information about the current whereabouts of the Red Mini is asked to contact Police as soon as possible on 101 quoting reference 0501 of 13 June.
Detective Sergeant John Lumsden said:
"To reduce the likelihood of your vehicle being stolen always make sure you lock it when leaving it unattended, donít keep the ignition keys near to the front door and make sure you keep all of the doors of your property locked, especially at night.
"Also if you hear or see any suspicious activity in your community, especially during the night, please call 101 and officers will be despatched to the area."
