Thieves might have put stolen number plates on car they swiped from Aberdeen street

Thieves took a car from Aberdeen street – and police said it is possible they fitted it with stolen registration plates.

Police said thieves stole a black Volkswagen Golf – registration BW57 BHY – from Brebner Terrace in Northfield at some point between 10pm on Sunday evening and 8am today.

Number plates showing the registration SV51 TTK were stolen from another vehicle in nearby Bonnyview Drive at the same time.

Detective Constable Faye Stonehouse said: “We can’t rule out that these number plates have been attached to another vehicle, in particular the Volkswagen Golf stolen overnight.

“If you see this vehicle or the number plates in question, please  let us know as soon as possible by contacting Police on 101 quoting reference number CF0086420418.”
