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.

“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.”
