Guns and jewels stolen from homes in Dumfries

Detectives are investigating two high value thefts in Dumfries over the past week after homes were broken into.

Both properties were empty because the owners were away on holiday and in each case guns, jewellery, cash and alcohol were taken.

Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said inquiries were under way to recover the property, particularly the firearms.

Officers asked anyone offered similar goods for sale to contact them and urged homeowners to check their alarms.
