A number of sheds and garages have been broken into in Aberdeen.
The incidents in the Bucksburn area happened between 10.30pm on Monday and 7.30am yesterday.
A bicycle was stolen from one property, a motorbike was damaged which was parked outside Mugiemoss Court, and a Vespa scooter was damaged, which was within a garage, in Bankhead Road.
Detective Constable Michael Christiansen, who is investigating the incidents, said: “During the course of yesterday we received reports of a number of sheds and garages being broken into in the Bucksburn area over Monday night and into Tuesday morning.
“Although nothing was taken from the majority of the incidents, the experience will have frustrated and unsettled the shed and garage owners, especially as most will have to pay for repairs or replacement security padlocks etc.
“If anyone recalls seeing or hearing anything in the areas of Hillocks Way, Greenburn Drive or Bankhead Avenue on Monday night/Tuesday morning I would ask that they contact us with any information they may have, no matter how small and insignificant it may seem.
“I would also remind all shed and garage owners to ensure they keep them locked overnight, install security lighting if possible, and ensure that valuable items stored within sheds and garages, such as bicycles or motorbikes, are further secured to fixed points to prevent them being taken.
“Anyone with information about these incidents should contact Police Scotland on 101 quoting reference 0515 of 9 October.”
