The stolen costume jewellery included a silver ring with a large aquamarine stone and a Miss Kitty watch.

Police are appealing for anyone who has any information about the burglary to contact them, including anyone who witness the break-in or has been offered the stolen items for sale.

“If you have any information, no matter how small or insignificant you may think it is, please do not hesitate to contact the police. If you want to remain anonymous you can call Crimestoppers instead of the police.”
