North-east officers are appealing for information following a theft in the Silverbank Crescent area of Banchory.
Between September 2 and 3 there were reports of a man and woman in the area and appeared to be carrying out bogus work.
They were utilising a dark blue ford transit pickup van which had Irish plates.
Any CCTV such as ring doorbell or dashcam footage would be sought.
Police constable Simon Anderson, of Banchory Community Policing Team said; “We would encourage anyone with any knowledge that may assist us to identify these people to get in touch with us.
"We would be particularly interested if anyone has private CCTV or video doorbell footage that could help our enquires.
"Always ensure anyone cold calling offering to carry out work is genuine.
"Ask for references and identification and never hand over any money until the work is completed.
"If you have any concerns in relation to anyone attending at your home, note details and contact Police”
