£50k jewellery stolen from Borders home

Around £50,000 worth of jewellery has been stolen from a house in the Scottish Borders.

The break-in was discovered at around 4.15pm on Friday (15th February) at a property in Main Street near Duns in Berwickshire.

A family member returned to the house to find various pieces of expensive jewellery had been taken.

Lothian and Borders Police are keen to trace the driver of a white Transit van, seen in the area at the time.

"The property owners have been left devastated by the theft of their jewellery and are keen to have the items returned as soon as possible.

"We would like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing anything suspicious in the Main Street area of Gavinton between the 9th and 15th February and are particularly keen to speak to those who remember seeing a white Transit van, which was seen outside the address on Friday afternoon.

"Similarly, anyone with any other information that can assist with our investigation is also asked to come forward."
