Three men have appeared in court in connection with a midnight raid on a north-east camera shop.
Tens of thousands of pounds worth of gear was stolen from Jessop’s photography store on Aberdeen’s Market Street between midnight and 3am on Monday.
Officers leading the investigation previously estimated the total value of what was taken during the break-in to be in the region of £50,000.
A white Ford Transit van was discovered nearby following the robbery, which police believe could be related to the incident.
Police subsequently arrested and charged three men in connection with the case who have since appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.
Thomas Day, 39, from Liverpool, appeared in private yesterday charged with alleged theft by housebreaking.
He made no plea and no declaration and was released on bail.
On Tuesday another man from Liverpool, 37-year-old John Davies, also appeared in connection with the incident.
He and his co-accused John Murphy, 31, from Aberdeen, also made no plea and no declaration to the theft by housebreaking charge and were released on bail.
All three men are expected to appear in court again at a later date.
The procurator fiscal has also received a report concerning a 36-year-old man. He did not appear in court but the report remains under consideration by prosecutors.
Officers have confirmed some of the goods have been recovered, but there remains a number of items that have still to be found.
Police are appealing to anyone who may have been offered electrical items or cameras for sale to get in touch with the police.
Anyone with information that could help should contact police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to remain anonymous.
