An Omega watch was among an expensive haul of personal belongings stolen from an Uplyme bedroom.

An investigation has been launched by police to track down the thieves, who struck at a property in Rhode Lane between Wednesday, March 20 and Monday, March 25.

The high-value raid saw thousands of pounds-worth of jewellery and silverware taken after a bedroom window was forced open.

Numerous gold and silver rings, brooches, chains, bracelets, necklaces and other items were stolen, along with a considerable amount of silver cutlery.

An Omega moonwatch, Montblanc fountain pen, a set of solid silver monogrammed with the letter T, a crystal glass silver-topped inkwell and cash were also among the haul.

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101, quoting crime reference CR/026686/19.

Officers would also like to hear from any second-hand dealers and antique or auction houses which have been offered any items for sale.
