A six-figure sum worth of Asian gold jewellery and clothes has been stolen from a South Nitshill home. 

Residents of the Whitacres Road property had been away between the house of 7pm and 8.25pm yesterday evening when their home was ransacked. 

Officers are now appealing to the public for information to trace those responsible for the thousands of pounds worth of theft. 

Anybody with dashcam footage who may have been in the area at the time are urged to come forward. 

Detective Constable John Grant, Community Investigation Unit, Govan, Glasgow, said: 

"From CCTV, we can see a black BMW x5 drive round and round the street prior to the break-in. We would like to speak to the driver as they may have information that will help our enquiry. 

"We believe that this house was specifically targeted as the thieves seemed to know there would be a significant amount of gold jewellery within. 

"The break-in has been very upsetting for the family and whilst the jewellery is valuable in monetary terms, it is also of great sentimental value. 

"If you have any information that will assist officers with their investigation, maybe you have dash-cam footage from the street between 7 pm and 8.25 pm, then please call Govan Police Office via 101 quoting reference number 3336 of 23 July 2020.  Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111."
