A large number of high-value items have been stolen from building sites across the north-east in a spate of thefts.
All the thefts happened between last Friday and Monday.
Items taken include:
- Solar panels, worth around £7,000, from a building site in the Stoneywood area on Monday evening.
- Around £9,000 of building equipment from a site in the Froghall area at some point between Sunday and Monday.
- Copper pipes from the Chapelton area at some point between August 18 and 20
- Tools and building materials worth more than £1,000 from the Souterhead Road in Altens between August 17 and August 20.
- Stainless steel gaskets from Exploration Drive in Bridge of Don on Monday.
PC Kirk Hemmings said: “We don’t have a total value for all the items taken but most of the equipment is valuable and will be costly and inconvenient for businesses to replace.
“We are appealing to the public for assistance and would ask that anyone with information contact the police on 101 using the reference numbers provided.
“If you have seen anything unusual in the areas targeted within the last week please get in touch.
“We would also ask that anyone who may be offered solar panels or equipment for sale that they get in touch with us.
“We are dedicated to tackling acquisitive crime and are carrying out inquiries to locate the stolen property and to find those responsible.
“If you see anything suspicious in your area please contact police with as much information as you can including makes and models of any vehicles.
“Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
