Police in Aberdeen are appealing for information following a break-in at a shop in Rosemount.
The thieves targeted the Sainsbury’s store on Rosemount Place at 2.20am on Sunday, November,24, via Eden Place.
Police said inquiries are ongoing into the incident and so far suggest there were three people involved, who together stole a four-figure sum of cigarettes.
Sergeant Dougie Mackay of Aberdeen’s Queen Street Police Station said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the Rosemount area in the early hours of this morning to get in touch if they saw or heard anything suspicious.
“The people responsible stole a significant number of cigarette packets, so it is likely that they will try to sell these on in the next few days. If somebody has approached you offering to sell you cigarettes, please let police know.
“I would also ask anyone who may have been driving in the area around the time to review any dashcam footage and report anything which may be of use to us.”
