He said: “While this burglary happened in the early hours of the morning, I would ask anyone that might have witnessed the incident or seen a vehicle acting suspiciously in the area to contact me as soon as possible.
“I would also note a word of caution, if you are offered a deal that seems too good to be true then it most probably is.
“If you have concerns about where items of jewellery might have come from, call us immediately.”
