Grampian Police are investigating the theft of an automated teller machine from Fraserburgh’Kessock Service Station.
The raid occurred at around 2.30am on Monday at the Maconochie Road premises.
It is strongly believed that a vehicle would have been used in this incident, and officers are keen to trace a dark coloured Land Rover Discovery and a dark coloured estate car which were seen near the garage at the time of the incident.
