SIX PEOPLE HAVE appeared in court in connection with the theft of two lorries from an Aberdeen industrial estate – including two from Elgin.

Five men and one woman appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Thursday in connection to the theft of the lorries, which were later found burned out on an A97 layby south of Huntly.

Guy Bandeen, 23 and Jill Reid, 40, both from Elgin, were joined in court by Jordan Fenwick, 21, Alexander Henderson, 24, John Stewart, 22 and Scot Morrison, 31 – all made no plea and were released on bail and expected to return to the court in a week.  A seventh man had been arrested in connection with the incident but was released without making a court appearance.

The six were charged in connection with the theft of two lorries which had been filled with alcohol and furniture – they had been stolen from M&H Logistics at the West Tullos industrial estate in Aberdeen. Police have also linked the case with a Renault Megane that was later found burned out in the Hazlehead area.

Earlier police investigating the crime thanked members of the public who contacted them with information.

They added that enquiries are ongoing but they wish to speak to anyone who has any information about the incident, in particular the silver Renault Megane motor car discovered on Monday afternoon.

Anyone with information should contact Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
