POLICE are appealing for witnesses after jewellery was stolen in a Weymouth burglary.

The incident happened some time between between 5.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday March 22 in Barrack Road.

The offenders forced entry into the front of the property and stole a quantity of jewellery and watches.

Police Constable Steve Newton, of Weymouth police, said: “This incident was distressing for the victim.

“A ten shilling note in a picture frame and a silver Royal Navy ‘Sweetheart’ brooch were two distinctive items taken.

“I would urge anyone who saw suspicious activity in the area to come forward as soon as possible.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered such items or similar for sale in strange circumstances or for an unusually low price.

“Anyone with information that can assist the investigation is asked to contact the police in confidence.”
