Several bikes worth thousands of pounds have been stolen from the Rosemount area of Aberdeen.
Police are appealing for witnesses following the spate of thefts, which are believed to have taken place early on Saturday.
The stolen bicycles include a black and green YT Capra, a grey and orange Hardtail Ghost, a Whyte G160 and a grey Trek.
Police say they were taken from West Mount Street, Loanhead Terrace, Westburn Road and Mount Street.
One man, who did not wish to be named, said he returned home after a night out on Friday at around 4am on Saturday and found his shed on Loanhead Terrace had been broken into.
He said: “Our gate was ajar, and one of the outhouses was open – and lo and behold both of my bikes were gone.
“All together, I reckon the value of my two bikes would have been about £2,000.
“I use them both all of the time, so it’s really been really gutting.
“I really hope someone might have seen them and phones the police.”
Detective Sergeant Bruce Buntain said: “We would also urge people to review their security.
“Bikes can be expensive items and the loss of one can interfere with both your leisure time and how you travel to work.
“We would always advise people to ensure they have a good quality lock for their bike and if it is stored in a shed, that the shed is safely locked as well.”
Anyone with information – or who has been offered a bike for sale – should call 101 or Crimestoppers.
