Police are warning drivers to be on the lookout after a car was stolen from the Liff area of Dundee.
Officers are appealing for information following the robbery in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Thieves forced their way into the address in the Tayview area of Liff and made off with car keys and a red Mercedes A Class with the registration number LS65 KDJ.
Police are now urging drivers to make life as difficult as possible for thieves.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Anyone who was in the area at the time and has information that could assist officers with their enquiries, or anyone who has seen this vehicle, is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.
We also offer the following security advice:
“Keep car and house keys in a secure place inside your home, away from the front door and out of sight, not on display on a hook, table or other furnishing.
“Make sure windows and doors are locked, don’t leave an open invitation for thieves to enter and make a quick grab for car or house keys.
“Never leave your car unattended with the keys in it. Particularly in cold weather, when it might be tempting to leave your car running whilst the windscreen and windows defrost.
“It’s preferable to keep your vehicles in a locked garage, however if you are parking on the street or in a driveway, consider parking in a well lit area and consider whether there is CCTV coverage.
“Look out for your neighbours and report any suspicious activity to Police Scotland.”
