Jewellery and other personal items totalling thousands of pounds was stolen following a daytime break-in to a house in Elgin.
Detectives in Moray are appealing for information after thieves struck in the Hamilton Drive area.
It is believed the break-in happened between 8.30am and 1.30pm on Thursday.
As a result of the crime, a quantity of personal items including jewellery was stolen.
Police Scotland said this was valued at a four-figure sum.
Detective Sergeant Scott McKay, from Aberdeen CID, said: “This incident took place during the daytime, on a residential street, therefore it is highly likely that someone has seen the person or people responsible in the area at the time.
“I would therefore like to appeal for any witnesses to come forward, whether you have seen the crime or simply people acting suspicious nearby.
“I am also appealing for anyone in the area with CCTV to come forward and contact Police. This includes doorbell cameras and vehicle dashcams.
“As we continue to carry out a number of enquiries in relation to this crime, residents may notice an increased police presence in the area, as we carry out additional patrols.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Police Scotland on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
