A 19-year-old man has been charged in relation to alleged car crime incidents that occurred during the weekend.
On Saturday a white Mercedes C250 car was stolen from the Whitehills Path area of Cove, a suburb of Aberdeen.
The vehicle was traced in the Edinburgh area on yesterday.
The teenager, who originates from the Lancashire area, is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court today.
Items were also allegedly stolen from a silver Audi Q3 at Langdykes Avenue and a blue Ford Fiesta at Allison Close sometime between Saturday and Sunday.
Detective Inspector Fionnuala McPhail said: “One man has been charged in relation to these incidents however our enquiries are still very much ongoing.
“If anyone recalls hearing or seeing any suspicious behaviour in the Cove area of Aberdeen on Saturday or the early hours of Sunday morning I would ask that they contact us on 101, quoting reference 1105 of 13 January.”
She added: “Additional patrols have been carried out in the Cove area since the weekend and if anyone has any concerns or information they can speak to any of the local officers out on patrol.
“I would also take this opportunity to remind vehicle owners not to leave valuable items in the vehicles overnight or when left unattended and certainly never on open display. Always ensure your vehicle is locked when not in use.”
