A teenager has been charged in connection with a theft from a bus depot – but police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward.
Police received a report fire extinguishers and high-visibility jackets had been stolen from the Stagecoach base on Hanover Street, Fraserburgh.
During the same incident, a bus that had been left unattended by a driver who was having their breakfast was broken into.
A fire extinguisher was taken from the bus, along with three high-visibility jackets.
The three extinguishers were found abandoned a short distance from the depot, but the jackets are still missing.
Police are investigating the break-in, which happened between 4.30am and 4.45am on April 6, and are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to get in touch.
“We received a report of a theft from Fraserburgh bus depot on April 6. A number of items were stolen,” said a Police Scotland spokeswoman.
The spokeswoman confirmed a 16-year-old boy had been charged in connection with the incident and will be reported to the Youth Justice Management Unit.
She added: “If anybody saw any suspicious behaviour or individuals who were out of place in the area, please call 101.”
Stagecoach said the incident was not linked to another raid on another of its north-east bases.
On that occasion, thieves broke into the depot at Balmoor Industrial Estate in Peterhead at around 1.50am on April 16 and stole a quantity of cash.
Stagecoach has not said how much was stolen.
A Stagecoach North Scotland spokeswoman said: “We are assisting police with their investigations.
“We would urge anyone with information to contact police, quoting reference number 0395 of April 16, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
Detective Sergeant George Nixon, who is leading the investigation into the Peterhead incident, said: “The break-in caused disruption to a vital local service and it won’t be tolerated.”
