Aberdeen link in Dundee jewellers raid investigation
Police are investigating reports that two men who robbed a Dundee jewellery shop targeted stores in Aberdeen on the same day.
The pair made off with "high-value items" from Stephen Henderson Jewellers in Dundee city centre on 6 February.
Two men of a similar description visited shops in Aberdeen with intent to steal earlier the same day.
Officers said it was possible the events were linked, and issued a fresh appeal for witnesses and information.
The theft in the Dundee store happened at 15:55, with the two men running off down Union Street towards the city railway station.
One was described as being white, 5ft 11in (1.80m) tall, with large blue eyes and mousey-coloured facial hair. He was wearing a distinctive navy blue deer stalker hat lined with cream fur, a grey and black striped top, an Adidas hooded gillet, navy jeans and blue trainers.
The man spoke with a Liverpudlian accent.
The second man was also white, 5ft 8in (1.72m) tall, with short dark hair. He was wearing a black hooded long-sleeved top, light grey Adidas jogging bottoms, light coloured trainers and a dark baseball cap.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland confirmed similar-looking men had targeted two shops on Aberdeen's Union Street at about 13:10 and 13:30 the same day.
No crime was committed, but police are investigating possible links with the theft in Dundee.
