Police have revealed the expensive items taken in a raid on a north-east home last week.

The rural property, in the Woodland of Durris area, was targeted between 11am and 12.30pm on Tuesday, July 2.

Officers have now confirmed a gold and white gold Rolex watch, a diamond and white gold ring, earring and necklace set, a diamond engagement ring, a gold dolphin necklace, and a gold and diamond bracelet were all taken.

Detective Sergeant Andy Machray said: “This incident has understandably been very distressing for the property owners and we are carrying out a thorough investigation.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have been driving in the area and have dash cam footage to check this and contact police. In addition I would ask that anyone who has been offered items for sale checks their authenticity and if in doubt contact the police.”

Just a day after that incident, a thief sneaked into a property on Blackhall Court, Inverurie and made of with £500 worth of jewellery.

A box, containing watches, rings and necklaces, was taken between 5-10pm last Wednesday.

It is understood there is nothing to connect the two thefts but police are keeping an open mind.

Anyone with information on either incident should contact 101.
