Property worth around £50,000 has been stolen following a break-in.
Two vehicles, a red Mini Countryman with the registration number J40 GCR and a silver Land Rover Discovery with the registration number SY05 RNF, were taken from a property at Glamourhaugh Crescent, Huntly, between midnight and 4.30am today.
A red Quadzilla 50cc child’s quad bike was also taken as well as a number of musical instruments and personal electrical and digital items.
Detective Sergeant John Snedden urged members of the public to review their home security and ensure valuables were locked and kept out of sight.
He said: “North-east Division has launched Operation Magpie to target acquisitive crime and officers are focused on targeting offenders.
“However we would ask that you do all you can to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of crime
“Firstly ensure your property be it your home, shed, garage or car is locked even when you are at home.
“Don’t leave any house or car keys near your front door.
“Don’t store valuables in your car or near a window of your house.
“Please remain vigilant and if you see anything unusual or suspicious in your neighbourhood report it to us. Let us decide whether there is cause for concern.”
The force appealed for anyone with information about the Huntly break-in to contact them.
