Police Scotland is appealing for information following two break-ins in the Macduff area of Aberdeenshire.
The first theft is believed to have happened between 9:30pm on Tuesday 26 January and 7:15am on Wednesday 27 January and took place in the Skene Street area. As a result, an orange ‘Carrera’ mountain bike and associated gear were stolen, with an estimated total value of a low four figure sum.
The second incident took place in the High Shore area and is believed to have occurred between 9:00pm on Tuesday 26 January and 9:30am on Wednesday 27 January. As a result, a quantity of jewellery was stolen, with a total value estimated at a mid four figure sum.
Inspector Megan Heathershaw, of the Banff Community Policing Team, said
Enquiries into each of these incidents are ongoing and local officers have been following positive lines of enquiry. In both of these incidents, members of the community have had their homes violated and a significant amount of personal possessions stolen.
I would appeal for anyone with information that may assist us to come forward. If you were in either of the areas and saw anything suspicious, or have been offered to buy any of these items, please contact Police Scotland in the first instance rather than posting on social media.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
