STOLEN garden equipment may have been specifically targeted by thieves, police say.
Thieves broke into two garden sheds at separate addresses in Briarlea, Hepscott, and stole two lawnmowers.
One was a red Honda petrol lawnmower and the other was a yellow Emak petrol model.
The thefts took place between noon on Thursday, May 9, and 9.55am on Sunday.
It is likely the lawnmowers were loaded into a van.
Police are keen to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area, particularly a van or large vehicle parked nearby. Contact officers on 101, ext 69191.
