Detectives seek estate car used by armed gang
Police hunting an armed gang who tied up a family in their home before stealing jewellery worth more than £100,000 are trying to trace a car believed to have been used in the robbery.
Detectives made a fresh appeal for information more than a week after four men forced their way into the house in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire.
The father, 59, and mother, 56, were threatened with weapons including a knife before being tied up.
Their 11-year-old son was also bound before they raided the property in the town’s Blantyre Road on 31 October. Jewellery and watches worth a six-figure sum were taken in the raid around 7:30pm. The family were not injured but left ‘’extremely’’ shaken.
Officers have been reviewing CCTV from the area and believe a dark estate car was used by the gang.
