70 watches stolen in Sandy


Police are appealing for information after a large collection of pocket watches was stolen from an elderly couple’s home in Sandy.

Burglars helped themselves to around 70 watches while the victims were asleep at the property in Swithun’s Way.

Detective Constable Jason Wheeler, investigating, said: “These watches vary in price but hold huge sentimental value – some date back to the 1960s.

“They may well be sold locally and I would appeal to dealers, shops and traders to be vigilant and to call police if they are offered them for sale.”

Anyone with any information should call DC Wheeler on 101.
