As a result of extensive investigation carried out by Levenmouth CID, search warrants were executed at two addresses in Dundee on Friday, and various pieces of jewellery and other valuables, worth over £60,000, were recovered.

Detective Constable Mark Millar said, “We’re delighted to have recovered large amounts of the stolen property from the Guardbridge store, as these pieces have been collected over several years and were a huge loss to the owners, both financially and from a sentimental point view.”
