£20kcar nicked outside a house
A silver Mini Cooper thought to be valued around £20,000 - was stolen from outside a house in Stirling last week.
Police have issued an appeal for information after crooks targeted the vehicle which was parked on Wallace Park in Braehead between noon on Thursday February 9 and 6pm the following day.
Those responsible forced entry to a property there before stealing the keys and making off with the car, which is silver with black stripes on the bonnet and has registration MA12 ANS.
The owners were not at home at the time of the crime and officers were contacted by a concerned neighbour.
Police are linking the theft to similar incidents which happened in the south Alloa area at the weekend.
On Saturday an Audi and a Mercedes were taken from outside a property while on the same day a Mini was stolen from a separate address nearby.
Officers are appealing for anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area, or who has perhaps seen this car in the last few days, to get in touch.
Contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
