This is the shocking moment a suspected fraudster couple were caught on CCTV stealing a charity tin filled with cash for disadvantaged children.
Cops are investigating at least 13 despicable incidents in which charity buckets were stolen from shop counters over the last week. It is thought that a man and woman are behind a number of the sneak thefts in the north of Scotland.
And police have confirmed the thefts in Aberdeen, Peterhead and Turriff, Aberdeenshire, but are currently unable to say whether they are all linked. In one incident, a man and woman were caught on CCTV as a bucket was swiped from a gym in Aberdeen.
