COPS are appealing for information after a spate of car thefts in Clydebank. 

Officers say crooks targeting Ford Kuga motors have pounced in the town in the last month. 

The model was also pinched from outside a home in Helensburgh in May. 

Between 1am and 1.30am on Monday, 11 May, a white Ford Kuga was stolen from a property on Ambercomby Crescent in the Argyll and Bute town.

A second car, a black Ford Kuga, was stolen from Beeches Road in Clydebank between 12pm on Saturday, 9 June, and 11am on Sunday, 10 June.

A green Ford Kuga was stolen from a third property on Millen Drive in Clydebank between 2am and 3.35am on Wednesday, 17 June.

Detective Constable Imran Abuzar said: "We believe the three incidents to be connected due to the same car model being targeted. 

"I am appealing to the public for any information regarding the thefts of these three vehicles.

"I am particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have CCTV or dashcam footage within these streets and surrounding areas at the time the incidents occurred.

"Please do check back as there may be footage that could assist in our investigation.

"I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind people of securing their homes and vehicles before they go to bed at night and to make sure that keys are kept in a secure place within the property. 

"By taking simple steps to ensure your home and vehicles are secure, this will make you less likely to be a victim of these types of crimes.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
