Police have made a further appeal for witnesses following a break-in to a Banchory shop.

The incident happened at Out There in Dee Street around 2.30am on Thursday, June 9, and a quantity of clothing worth a low five-figure sum of money was stolen.

Officers earlier appealed for witnesses in relation to two stolen vehicles, a silver Citroen C5 (KY10 EJN) and a cream Mini with a black roof (SW59 EZP).

The Citroen has since been recovered and inquiries are continuing to trace the Mini.

Marr Area Inspector Martin Burgess said: “Additional patrols are being carried out in the area but we are urging residents to ensure they keep their homes and cars locked and items of value stored out of sight.

“If anyone sees or has seen suspicious behaviour in recent days we would ask them to contact the police.

“I would urge any member of the public who believes they have information relating to these crimes to contact Police Scotland on 101, or alternatively they can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
