POLICE have urged members of the public to be conscious of vehicle security following the theft of two cars from a North-east town.
A black Volkswagen Golf and a white Mazda 3 were stolen from an address in Glenury Crescent, Stonehaven, early yesterday morning.
Police have reminded car owners to ensure they leave unattended vehicles locked and in a garage if possible.
Valuable items should also be removed from the vehicle or kept out of sight.
PC Steven Inglis of the Stonehaven Community Policing Team said: “While officers continue to focus on detecting and deterring those who engage in criminal activity we encourage the public to do all they can to protect themselves from becoming a victim of opportunistic thieves.
“This includes making sure doors and windows are locked and that vehicles are also secured.
“Stonehaven and Aberdeenshire has a relatively low level of crime but that does not mean we should be complacent when securing property and valuables.
“We would also ask that the public report any sightings of suspicious vehicles or activity to the police immediately.
“Where possible also note the vehicle registration number, the number and description of occupants and the last known direction of travel for the vehicle.”
