Police are appealing for information following an incident where two vehicles were seen in suspicious circumstances near industrial units in Cruden Bay.
The vehicles were seen at around 9.15am on Saturday, August 1.
They are described as being a white crew-cab pickup truck and a small white flatbed truck with blue writing along the side.
There appears to have been no reason for these vehicles to be near the industrial units and officers are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
PC Lee, who is investigating the incident, said: “There has been a history of fuel and metal thefts in and around the Peterhead area and we are concerned that this incident may be another similar incident.
“We are keen to prevent any such crimes in the area and ask the local community to report any incidents which cause them concern.
“We are stepping up checks following this incident and are asking anyone who recognises these vehicles to come forward.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
