“Likewise, if anyone saw the described car and the stolen quad bikes anywhere in the north east following the theft to provide us with as much information as they can.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.
