Police in Aberdeenshire are appealing for help from members of the public to help re-unite owners with stolen jewellery and electrical items.

Officers say they recovered a “significant” amount of stolen property on Wednesday, November 6 and that the items are believed to have been stolen from across Aberdeenshire.

A 46 year old woman is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court at a later date in relation to the incidents and police are following a “positive line of enquiry” in relation to others who may be involved.

Officers have managed to return some of the items to owners, including an engagement ring and Tiffany jewellery.

But Police Scotland now needs help from members of the public to help trace owners that may have not reported thefts to the police.

Detective Sergeant Mike Reynolds said: “We are looking for the community to help us reunite these items with their rightful owners. Some of the items that we have recovered are very distinctive and we are hoping that someone out there will have information that can help us return the items.”

Jewellery and electrical items have been taken in four separate raids across Deeside, in Tarland, Durris and twice in Banchory, this year.

One incident in Banchory’s Watson Street in September saw £30,000 worth of property stolen including a Rolex watch and an engagement ring.

Anyone with information or who believes the items recovered could belong to them is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
