A man has admitted carrying out a string of thefts and attempted thefts in Aberdeen over the festive period.
Terence Middleton first struck at the TK Maxx in Kittybrewster on December 14 where he stole shaving equipment and an electric toothbrush.
Four days later, the 42-year-old forced open a vehicle on Promenade Court which he intended to steal.
And on December 29 he stole a jacket from the Cotswold in Union Square, and the next day he forced open a vehicle on Orchard Street with the intent to steal.
Middleton, of Northfield Place, committed all the offences while on bail.
He will return to court to be sentenced later this week.
