Officers are appealing for information regarding a high value theft of money and jewellery from a house in the Parkhouse Estate, Darnley on Thursday, February 6.

Between 4:45pm and 6pm on Thursday evening, a house in Whitacres Road was broken into by three men who stole a five figure sum of money and a four figure sum of jewellery before being disturbed at 6pm, and running off onto Parkhouse Road.

The men are described as having their faces covered and wearing dark coloured tops and bottoms. Two of them were observed carrying bags.

Constable Fraser Gunn at Govan Police Station, Glasgow said: “The suspects for this break-in may have been in the area prior to the occupants leaving their house. Once the occupants have been out of sight the suspects have broken into the house and taken the money and the jewellery, which is described as Asian in quality, 18ct and 24ct gold, consisting of necklaces, bangles and earrings.

“The occupants have returned home just before 6pm and observed lights on within the house and a man within the living room. Shortly after, all three men have exited the house. The suspects ran past them whilst they in their car, and out onto Parkhouse Road.

“No other items were taken apart from the money and jewellery, so we believe that this house was targeted specifically.

“From CCTV we can see that there is a lot of traffic on Parkhouse Road around the time of the break-in, and we would appeal to anyone who was in the area and who may have seen these men running to come forward. We are also keen to get dash-cam footage from vehicles who were in the area as well.

Anyone with any information which might assist in this investigation should call the Community Investigation Unit (Housebreakings) at Govan Police Station via 101 quoting reference number 2892 of the 6th February 2020, or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
