Police are appealing for information after an antique naval chest, described as a family heirloom, was stolen from a house in Dumfries and Galloway.

The Georgian chest, worth around £1,000 was taken between Saturday 3 March and Saturday 10 March, from a large house on Barrhill Road in Dalbeattie.

It was the only item taken, and is described as being in the form of a writing desk with drawers down either side.

We are carrying out door to door enquiries in the area and are looking for the assistance of the public. The house sits in its own grounds however is overlooked at the rear. We are keen to hear from anyone who may have been on the Barrhill Road over the past week and who might have heard or seen anything suspicious.

We would be keen to hear about any suspicious vehicle movements on that road over that period. Anyone who wants to pass any information to us about this matter should call us at Castle Douglas on the 101 number and quote the reference number PDG 0050310318.
