Police have launched an investigation after crooks raided an Aberdeenshire home.
Officers are appealing for information following a break-in at a property in the Park area of Drumoak.
The incident happened between 11.45am and 3.15pm on Wednesday, and electrical items, jewellery and a number of other personal items were stolen.
Detective Constable Karen Maxwel, who is leading inquiries, said: “Incidents of this nature are extremely rare in this particular area, and in particular for it to have happened during the day.
“Crime levels may be low, however I would ask people living in Drumoak and the surrounding areas to be vigilant while our inquiries continue.
“This particular property lies on the A93 North Deeside Road so I would also ask anyone with dash-cam footage which may have captured any suspicious activity before, during or after the hours in question to get in touch as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference number 2599 of June 26.
