A car, jewellery and watches worth thousands of pounds have been stolen in a house burglary in Langford – and with the vehicle still missing, police have now appealed for witnesses.
The break-in happened at about 7.30am on Tuesday, October 11, when someone entered a house in the High Street.
The person made off in a metallic green Volvo car, which has still not been recovered. Police said the licence plate starts with a Y.
Among the other stolen items were a gold Omega De Ville watch – worth thousands of pounds – a silver Fusee watch dated 1867 and a gold fob watch shaped like a shield with a chain. Jewellery and a pair of binoculars were also taken.
Det Sgt Simon Hancock, who is investigating, said: “At this moment in time the Volvo has not been recovered and I am therefore asking anyone who saw the car being driven in the Langford area on Tuesday, or any day since, to come forward.

“I am also keen to speak to anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the High Street at the time of the offence, or who recognises the items described, so that we can trace the offender and help prevent any further distressing burglaries like this from occurring.”
