The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Around £20,000 worth of jew­ellery has been stolen from a house in Dum­fries and Gal­loway.

Po­lice said rings, watches, pen­dants and bracelets, some with sen­ti­men­tal value, were stolen in the raid at the house in New­ton Ste­wart, on Satur­day morn­ing.

The oc­cu­pants found there had been a break-in when they re­turned home that evening.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about the rob­bery which hap­pened be­tween 9.40am and 9.30pm on Jan­uary 5.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Jack­son Ser­vice said: “The oc­cu­pants of the house were out for the day and on re­turn­ing home in the evening were met with a break-in to their home.

“At this stage we are ap­peal­ing for any­one who may have been in the area around Philip Av­enue in the town on Satur­day to call us if they saw or heard any­thing sus­pi­cious.

“We are car­ry­ing out door-todoor in­quiries. In par­tic­u­lar we would be keen to hear about de­tails of any ve­hi­cles which ap­peared strange to the area.”
