A brazen thief broke into a Dundee house and drove away with the family car as the householder looked on, police have reported.
Officers are appealing for information about the daylight break-in at Union Terrace, which was then directly followed by the theft of the vehicle at around 10.40am on Wednesday.
Police said that the person responsible is thought to have climbed over a wall from Rose Lane, which runs down the side of the Hillltown multis, to gain access.
The incident happened while the householder was at home.
A number of items were disturbed in the house before the thief took the keys to the family car, and was seen by the householder to drive off in it.
This car is a blue Toyota Yaris hybrid, which carried the registration number ST65 ZFG when it was stolen.
Officers are looking to trace a man described as white, in his early 30s, slim build with short dark hair, who was wearing a dark jacket with a peak on the hood, a camouflage patterned hooded top underneath, dark Under Armour jogging bottoms, black Nike Airmax trainers with white soles, and was also carrying a long sleeved khaki T-shirt.
Anyone with any information, or who may have seen the car described above since yesterday morning, is asked call 101 or speak with any police officer.
Information can also be given anonymously through Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. The reference is CR/25668/19.
