Thieves have targeted four primary schools in Aberdeen, taking petty cash and a safe.
Kirkhill Primary, Abbotswell Primary, West Park Primary and Braeside Primary were broken into between February 27 and March 22.
Detective Constable Karen Maxwell said: “Petty cash and a safe have been stolen from two schools, the other schools reported nothing stolen.
“Officers are reviewing CCTV and carrying out door to door inquiries in an attempt to identify those responsible. We cannot rule out the possibility that these crimes are linked.
“I would ask the public to vigilant and report any suspicious activity around schools to Police Scotland.
“Anyone with any information about the break-ins to these schools should call 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
