THERE has been a second high-value housebreaking in Troon where jewellery has been stolen, police have confirmed.

Between Friday, July 15 and Wednesday, July 20, a house in Sarazen Drive was broken into and a quantity of jewellery, worth a five-figure sum, was stolen.

Detective sergeant Craig Gilmour, South Ayrshire CID, said: “Our enquiries are ongoing at the moment and whilst at this time we cannot confirm this housebreaking and the one on Southwood Road recently are linked, we also cannot rule that possibility out as the circumstances are very similar.

“Again on this occasion, the thieves have broken into the house whilst the owners were away.

"We believe that the suspects know what they are looking for and it appears that valuable jewellery is what they want.
